Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Notices


Under certain circumstances, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act requires you to provide notice 60 days in advance of plant closures or mass layoffs.  The WARN Act is intended to offer protection to workers, their families and communities.

The U.S. Department of Labor provides compliance assistance materials to help employers and workers understand their rights and responsibilities under the provisions of WARN, including everything you need to know about requirements for a WARN notice.
