On September 2008, the Court approved a final settlement valued at $1.0 million dollars for the former employees of Quaker Fabric. Outten & Golden filed suit against Quaker Fabric Corporation in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to secure the rights of former Quaker Fabric employees in connection with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act). Quaker Fabric terminated approximately 895 employees at its facilities on or about July 5, 2007 without providing them 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. Quaker Fabric terminated employees on July 5, 2007, without providing them with advance written notice.
An initial distribution of the settlement was mailed to the class in December 2008, and a second distribution was made on June 11, 2010. A third and final distribution is expected by the second quarter of 2013.
