On September 2, 2011, Outten & Golden filed suit against Solyndra LLC (“Solyndra”) seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Solyndra under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act) and the California Labor Code (the "WARN Acts"). We contend Solyndra ordered mass layoffs on or about August 31, 2011 without providing the employees with advance written notice. On September 6, 2011, Solyndra filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. On September 6, 2011, Outten & Golden filed suit in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. 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 October 15, 2012, the Court held a Final Fairness Hearing and approved a settlement in the amount of $3.5 Million to the WARN Class, inclusive of class counsel’s fees and expenses. Settlement checks (net of fees, expenses and applicable withholdings), are expected to be mailed to the members of the Class by December 15, 2012. Class members have 180 days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or cash them.
