Worley & Obetz, Inc., AMERIgreen Energy, Inc., and AMERIgreen Propane, LLC
On June 7, 2018, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Worley Obetz, Inc., AMERIgreen Energy, Inc., and AMERIgreen Propane, LLC (“Worley & Obetz”) seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act. We contend Worley & Obetz ordered mass layoffs beginning on May 21, 2018 at its Manheim and Lancaster locations, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice as required by the WARN Act. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
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.
