All is Not Lost if Your Employer Files Bankruptcy
You do not have to wave goodbye to your money if you lose your job due to your company filing for bankruptcy. However, you need to take careful and proactive steps to protect your Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification (WARN) Act rights. That is where WARN claims attorneys Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian of Raisner Roupinian LLP can help.
Fast and Aggressive Approach to Your WARN Claim
Our job in making a claim for your wages is to move quickly. Bankruptcy courts impose set deadlines on claims. There are hurdles to litigation, particularly in securing class action status. However, retaining competent counsel such as Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian can help you overcome those odds and protect your rights.
Know Your Rights. Don’t Give Up on a WARN Claim
At Raisner Roupinian LLP, we provide the facts to our clients. So-called bankrupt companies often have a great deal of money after a bankruptcy filing. Employees owed money have an advantage over others. While not first in line to be paid back, certain parameters result in priority status in the bankruptcy courts. You may be near the head of the line and able to collect up to $12,475 of unpaid wages and benefit contributions based on a violation of your WARN rights.
Do not just give up on money you are owed or assume that you will be paid only pennies on the dollar. Contact our WARN Act litigation firm for a free consultation.
