On August 2, 2015, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Univita Health Inc and Univita of Florida Inc. (“Univita”) to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Univita under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act). We contend Univita ordered mass layoffs or plant closings on or about July 28, 2015 without providing the employees with advance written notice. On August 28, 2015, Univita filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Our WARN class action was transferred to the Bankruptcy Court and is being litigated there.
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.
