reductions in force

Outten & Golden attorneys help individuals who have lost their jobs in a reduction in force ("RIF") determine whether they have legal claims against their former employer. If the RIF qualifies as a mass layoff under the WARN Act, that law requires employers to give workers advance notice of the RIF. If an employer does not give notice, it will owe the affected workers wages for the entire period during which they should have been on notice. Workers who have lost their jobs in a RIF should consult an Outten & Golden lawyer. For more information please visit Outten & Golden's WARN Act website.
