On August 8, 2017, we filed suit against Fluor Corporation, Fluor Enterprises, Inc., and SCANA Corporation (“Defendants”) seeking to recover up to 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act. We contend Defendants ordered mass layoffs on or about July 31, 2017, without providing their employees with 60 days advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina.
The parties are in the discovery phase of litigation. That means they are reviewing documents and taking and defending depositions of parties and witnesses. (The scheduling of depositions was delayed due to COVID-19.) Once discovery is complete, the parties will participate in a two-day settlement meeting in September, to try and reach a global settlement. If the settlement meeting is unsuccessful, the parties expect to continue litigation and, potentially, proceed to trial. We will provide periodic updates when there are new developments to report.
