On June 2, 2016, Outten & Golden filed suit against Columbus Steel Castings Company, Columbus Holdings, Inc., and Constellation Enterprises LLC. ("Columbus Steel") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act. We contend Columbus Steel ordered mass layoffs on or about May 15, 2016, without providing its employees with advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
On November 1, 2016 the Court certified the case as a class action and notice was mailed to the members of the class on November 21, 2016. The parties are in the initial phase of discovery.
If this mass layoff affected you, Outten & Golden LLP can provide you with updated information regarding your rights in this case. 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.
