On March 6, 2009, Outten & Golden filed suit against Monaco Coach Corporation ("Monaco Coach") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Monaco Coach under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act). We contend Monaco Coach ordered mass layoffs on or about March 2, 2009 without providing its employees with advance written notice. 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 May 21, 2015, Judge Carey granted final approval of the WARN class action $10 Million settlement. Settlement checks (net of attorney’s fees, litigation and administrative expenses, service payments and applicable tax withholdings) were mailed by the settlement administrator to class members on June 30, 2015. Class members will have 120 days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or negotiate their checks. After 120 days, unclaimed funds will be remitted to the Clerk of the Delaware Bankruptcy Court in the name(s) of the class members.
