HR FACT OF THE WEEK: 4/5/2016
The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) is an imperative piece of legal legislation, especially If you’re seeking to do a mass layoff or close a plant. If your organization is seeking to do the aforementioned you should be aware of the following:
”In general, employers are covered by WARN if they have 100 or more employees, not counting employees who have worked less than 6 months in the last 12 months and not counting employees who work an average of less than 20 hours a week. Private, for-profit employers and private, nonprofit employers are covered, as are public and quasi-public entities which operate in a commercial context and are separately organized from the regular government. Regular Federal, State, and local government entities which provide public services are not covered.” – U.S Department of Labor
