On May 16, 2015, Outten & Golden LLP filed suit against Convergys Customer Management Group Inc., and Convergys Corporation ("Convergys") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former non-union employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act. We contend Convergys ordered mass layoffs on or about May 16, 2015 in its AT&T Work-at-Home program, without providing its employees with 60 days’ advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
The parties have reached a settlement, which the Court preliminarily approved on January 20, 2017 for the class of employees terminated on or about May 16, 2015. Notice of the terms of the settlement was mailed to each eligible class member’s last known address on January 25, 2017. The final fairness hearing is scheduled for March 9, 2017 and will be held in Courtroom 708 of the Potter Stewart U.S. Courthouse, 100 East Fifth Street, Cincinnati, Ohio before Magistrate Judge Karen L. Litkovitz. If the Court approves the settlement on March 9, 2017, checks will be mailed to the class soon thereafter. If your mailing address has changed in the past two years, please contact us immediately with your change of address.
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.
