Executive Summary

The Federal Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act ("WARN Act") requires that covered employers provide a specified notice of employment termination sixty (60) days prior to the date of a "Plant closing" or "Mass layoff" that results in an "Employment loss" for a sufficient number of employees.

WARN Acts can present a variety of issues for companies facing economic crises.
