Kohlberg Ventures/ClearEdge Power
On November 23, 2016, we filed suit against Kohlberg Ventures, LLC (“Kohlberg Ventures”) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California seeking to recover the remaining balance of the 60 days wages and benefits owed the terminated ClearEdge Power employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act. We contend Kohlberg Ventures, together with ClearEdge Power, ordered mass layoffs on or about April 25, 2014, without providing employees with advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
On November 4, 2019, the Court certify the case as a class action. Notice of the class action was mailed to the members of the class by Class Counsel on November 14, 2019.
The parties are in the discovery phase of litigation.
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.
