Product Quest Manufacturing, LLC
On September 12, 2018, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Product Quest Manufacturing, LLC, Ei LLC, Product Quest Logistics, LLC, Scherer Labs International, LLC, JBTRS, LLC, and PQ Real Estate LLC (“Product Quest Manufacturing”) seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act and unpaid wages and accrued vacation pay in violation of the North Carolina Wage and Hour Act. We contend Product Quest Manufacturing ordered mass layoffs beginning on August 12, 2018 at its Kannapolis and Daytona locations, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice as required by the WARN Act. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
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.
