On August 3, 2012, Outten & Golden filed suit against PEMCO World Air Services, Inc., (PEMCO) to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of PEMCO under the WARN Act (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act)in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. We contend PEMCO ordered mass layoffs at the Tampa, Florida facility within 60 days of August 3, 2012 without providing the 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 April 29, 2013, the Court approved a settlement in the amount of $275,000 to the WARN Class, inclusive of class counsels fees and expenses. Settlement checks (net of fees, expenses and applicable withholdings), were mailed to the members of the Class on June 7, 2013. Class members have 90 days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or cash them.
