On November 4, 2008, Outten & Golden filed suit against TWL Corporation, f/k/a Trinity Learning Corporation and TWL Knowledge Group, Inc., f/k/a Trinity Workplace Learning Corporation ("TWL Corporation") in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Texas, seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of TWL Corporation who were terminated under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. We contend TWL Corporation ordered mass layoffs on or about September 9, 2008 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 February 10, 2015, the Court granted a judgment against TWL Corporation in favor of the WARN Class in the amount of $652,402.00. Given the Estate's limited funds, the ultimate recovery to the Class is $247,796.94. The settlement checks were mailed by the settlement administrator, net of attorneys' fees, litigation and administrative expenses, service payments, and applicable tax withholdings, to the eligible members of the WARN Class on December 23, 2015. Those Class members will have ninety (90) days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or negotiate them.
