The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN and its state law equivalents (mini-WARN Acts) protect workers by requiring 60 days’ advance notice of plant closings or mass layoffs. WARN Acts call for potential damages which include up to 60 days’ wages and benefits for each employee of the company, plus daily fines of up to $500. When the economy takes a turn for the worse, the WARN Act and mini-WARN Acts tend to get attention, increasing greater potential that a violation of the WARN Act affects the company in a negative way.
