ITT Educational Services, Inc.
On September 16, 2016, we filed our WARN suit in the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana, against ITT Educational Services, Inc. (“ITT”), seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the federal and California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Acts. We contend ITT ordered mass layoffs then, without providing its employees with advance written notice as required by the WARN Acts.
In January 2017, the Bankruptcy Court appointed us interim class counsel to represent the WARN Act claimants. The parties have engaged in limited discovery and we have asked the Bankruptcy Court to certify the case as a class action. If the Court certifies the class, notice by first class mail will be mailed to the members of the class. We will provide an update here on the Court’s decision to certify the class. Please check back for updates.
On June 8, 2020, the Bankruptcy Court certified both a federal and California WARN class covering all ITT employees terminated on or about September 6, 2016, and appointed Raisner Roupinian LLP Class Counsel. Notice of the class action will be mailed to the members of the class by June 30, 2020. If you have moved and not updated your address with us, please do so now by completing the contact us form.
If this mass layoff affected you, Raisner Roupinian LLP can provide you with updated information regarding your rights in this case. Generally, the WARN Act requires companies to provide their employees with 60 days written notice in advance of a mass layoff or plant closing. In the absence of such notice, employers may be liable to each affected employee for 60 days wages and benefits.
