On March 13, 2014, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Simplexity, LLC (“Simplexity”) seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act, and also unpaid wages for time worked under the Maryland and Virginia Wage Payment Acts. We contend Simplexity ordered mass layoffs on or about March 12, 2014, without providing its employees with advance written notice. On March 16, 2014, Simplexity filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. On March 17, 2014, Raisner Roupinian LLP re-filed its WARN suit in the Delaware Bankruptcy Court, where the litigation is continuing.
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.
