Strategic Fundraising, Inc.
On January 29, 2015, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Strategic Fundraising, Inc. (“SFI”) in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act for former employees of SFI who were terminated on or about January 22, 2015.
Raisner Roupinian LLP filed a second suit, on July 2, 2015, on behalf of those employees terminated on or about June 29, 2015. We contend that SFI ordered mass layoffs on or about January 22, 2015 and on or about June 29, 2015, without providing its employees with advance written notice as required by the WARN Act.
On August 13, 2015, SFI filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. On August 27, 2015, Raisner Roupinian LLP initiated a WARN suit in the Delaware Bankruptcy Court on behalf of the employees of SFI who were terminated on or about January 22, 2015 and June 29, 2015.
If these mass layoffs have 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.
