On July 28, 2009, Outten & Golden filed suit against GRA Liquidation, Inc., GRA Enterprises Liquidation, Inc. seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Black Angus Steakhouse who we contend were terminated on or about March 10, 2009 in violation of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act) and the California Labor Code §1400.
On July 1, 2014, the Court signed an order approving a settlement in the amount of $76,500.00, inclusive of fees and expenses, for the 58 affected employees. Beginning on October 27, 2015, settlement checks (net of fees, expenses and applicable payroll taxes), are being processed and mailed by the Black Angus Trustee to the 58 affected employees. If you have not received your settlement check, please contact our office immediately to confirm your current mailing address. Our contact information is below.
Generally, the WARN Act requires companies to provide their employees with 60 days written notice in advance of a mass layoff or plant closing. In the absence of such notice, employers may be liable to each affected employee for 60 days wages and benefits.
