On March 14, 2017, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Sungevity, Inc., (“Sungevity”) seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the federal and California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Acts and recovery of the employees’ accrued but unpaid vacation pay. We contend Sungevity ordered mass layoffs on or about March 9, 2017, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
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.
