company closings/shutdowns

Outten & Golden attorneys help workers who have lost their jobs because their companies closed determine whether they are entitled to money from their former employers. Under the federal WARN Act and similar state laws, in certain situations companies are required to give employees 60 days of notice (more in some states) before they close; if they don't, they owe the employees wages for the period during which they should have been on notice up to a certain maximum. Workers whose companies have shut down should consult with an Outten & Golden lawyer to determine whether they have a claim and visit Outten & Golden's WARN Act website for more information.
