On November 4, 2009, Outten & Golden filed suit against Corwood Laboratories, Inc., seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act and the NY WARN Act, as well as unpaid vacation leave. 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.
On June 5, 2012, Judge Trust granted final approval of the WARN class action settlement in the amount of $500,000, inclusive of class counsel's fees and expenses, and entered the Final Order on June 12, 2012. Settlement checks (net of fees, expenses and applicable withholdings), were mailed to the members of the Class on July 23, 2012. Class members have 90 days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or cash them before the funds revert to the Corwood Estate to pay other creditor claims.
