On July 28, 2011, Outten & Golden LLP filed suit against Data Listing Services, LLC, d/b/a The Connection and Data Listing Services (Jamestown) LLC, seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Data Listing Services (The Connection) who we contend were terminated on or about February 4, 2011 in violation of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act) and the NY WARN Act.
On March 26, 2014, the court entered a final judgment approving the WARN Act settlement valued at $250,000, inclusive of class counsel's fees and expenses. Pursuant to the terms of the settlement, The Connection will mail checks to the members of the class on or before June 2, 2014. Class members will have six months from the date of distribution to cash or deposit their checks.
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.
