Failure to Send Proper WARN Notice Leads to $4.5 Million Settlement

We posted before about the obligation of employers with more than 100 employees to provide advance notice to employees of an upcoming layoff of personnel.  According to the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, the now defunct law firm of Dewey LeBoeuf, LLP just agreed to settle claims from former employees arising from the firm’s failure to give proper layoff notices for $4.5 million dollars.  http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2014/06/12/dewey-settles-layoff-claims-for-4-5-million/.
