Iowa WARN Act
Your Rights under the Iowa WARN Act
Beyond the protection provided by the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, the Iowa WARN Act goes a bit further in ensuring compensation and benefits for hard-working residents. Few attorneys have the knowledge of our WARN Act lawyers, Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian. Few firms boast our breadth of experience and nationwide scope in class action litigation.
Iowa WARN Act Expands on Federal Regulations
With more employees covered, Iowa can count on greater protection under the state mandates. WARN Act litigation attorneys Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian will educate you on the pros and cons of the Iowa WARN Act and the federal WARN Act.
The Iowa WARN Act provides additional rights to Iowa employees, including the following:
- Employers with 25 or more full-time employees (federal is 100) must provide advance written notice of a business closing or mass layoff.
- Notice must come within 30 days prior to job loss.
- The shutdown need only affect 25 (federal is 50) or more full-time employees to trigger Iowa WARN rights.
- The layoff need only involve 25 or more full-time employees (federal is 50) at a single site during any 30 day period.
- Recovery is limited under the Iowa WARN Act with a maximum of $100 a day penalty (or $3,000 for 30 days of violation). The Iowa is enforced exclusively by that Iowa Department of Workforce Development.
