Associate — WARN Practice Area


  • New York Office


Outten & Golden is accepting applications for a talented, motivated associate to work in the New York office in the firm’s Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification (WARN) practice, investigating and prosecuting lawsuits on behalf of employees affected by mass layoffs and company shut-downs. The associate will play a key role in helping to manage class actions, including investigating new cases, drafting and editing pleadings, managing discovery, taking and defending depositions, participating in negotiations and mediations, leading court hearings, leading settlement implementation and litigating appeals.

The attorneys at O&G have effectively assisted thousands of clients in pursuing successful WARN Act class actions, unpaid wages, and severance claims related to sudden job loss without adequate notice. The nationwide litigation docket spreads across many industries, including financial services, manufacturing, retail, transportation, schools, hospitals, call centers, digital media, mining, aviation, solar and nuclear energy, and advertising.  The litigation venues stretch across the country, predominantly in federal district and bankruptcy courts.  

O&G encourages all of its attorneys to seek out opportunities for public speaking, publishing, and bar association activities.  Diversity, inclusiveness and equity are fundamental to our work at O&G.  We believe that to be effective advocates for civil rights and workplace fairness we must strive for diversity within our own workforce.  We are committed to diversity among our lawyers and staff, and to fostering a collegial and supportive workplace.


Minimum of 3 years of employment litigation experience. Judicial clerkship experience is valued but not required. The ideal candidate will have excellent analytical ability and outstanding research and writing skills. Candidates with exposure to corporate restructuring or bankruptcy practice are encouraged to apply.
