Managing Your Work Force and WARN Act Compliance

COVID-19 continues to create unique challenges for employers, starting by forcing them to evaluate all aspects of their business model, including cost and headcount reductions, in order to weather the pandemic.

Managing Your Work Force and WARN Act Compliance

Overview

Employers contemplating furloughs or layoffs must be mindful of the complicated federal and state advance notification requirements under the Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification Acts (WARN). Similarly, employers managing the current economic climate through salary and hours reductions must be aware a variety of wage-hour risks as well as advance notification requirements.  Additional requirements apply to the rehiring/returning employees to work process.
