On May 18, 2020, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed a class action suit against Klausner Lumber One, LLC, Klausner Lumber Two, LLC, Klausner Holding USA, Inc., and Klausner Trading USA, Inc. (collectively “Klausner”), seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees terminated on or about March 16, 2020 in violation of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act and unpaid wages and accrued paid time off. We contend Klausner ordered mass layoffs on or about March 16, 2020, without providing its employees with advance written notice as required by the WARN Act and that Klausner is also liable to the terminated employees for unpaid wages and accrued paid time off. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware where Klausner Lumber One, LLC filed for bankruptcy protection.
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.
