Most employers are familiar with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. Because of the minimum employee levels, sporadic enforcement, and relatively mild penalties, many employers have not concerned themselves with it. Do you know what sets state laws in Michigan and Minnesota apart from other states? Do you know which states have recently enacted mini-WARN statutes? Do you know which state bills companies for re-employment assistance?
Learn the answers to these questions and also what you need to know about the Federal Oversight, Reform, and Enforcement of the WARN Act (FOREWARN Act) in this month’s HRCast, a recording provided by our team of HR Pros and available exclusively on MyHRSupportCenter. You’ll learn how the FOREWARN Act will change the definitions of affected employers, minimum layoffs, and the notice period. Also learn about when potential double penalties may be imposed and how the Secretary of Labor’s rôle could change.
