On February 14, 2012, Outten & Golden filed suit against The Connaught Group LTD, seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act and the NY WARN Act. We contend The Connaught Group ordered mass layoffs on or about January 30, 2012 without providing its employees with advance written notice. The Case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
On November 14, 2013, the Court held a Final Fairness Hearing and approved the settlement to the class of $675,000.00, inclusive of class counsel’s fees and expenses. The WARN settlement is expected to be distributed by the Estate to the members of the Class in December 2013.
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.
