In our dynamic economy, many companies are streamlining their operations to maintain a competitive position in the marketplace. These actions may include a plant closure or mass layoff.
In 1988, Congress passed the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act to provide workers with sufficient time to prepare for the transition between the jobs they currently hold and new jobs. This transition may involve the provision of information about where new jobs may be found, or it may involve providing workers with other employment or retraining opportunities before they lose their jobs. In order to assist in maintaining the stability of the economy, the U.S. Department of Labor is committed to providing adjustment services to workers and employers and their affected communities.
To aid your business in understanding your obligatins under WARN, SESCO Management Consultants has developed the Employer's Guide to Advance Notice of Closings and Layoffs — WARN ACT. This guide provides information on how employers can achieve their business objectives while also protecting their employees.
