Working Solutions NYC Announces New Post on Furloughed Workers and New York’s WARN Act
Working Solutions NYC, a team of top-rated employment attorneys working on severance, FMLA, and unpaid wages issues in New York and New Jersey is proud to announce new content on furloughed workers and the requirements for New York's WARN Act.
The WARN Act requires employers to send notices about certain employment decisions, such as mass layoffs, to employees and relevant government entities before the decisions are implemented.
"Since the beginning of the Pandemic, New York workers have faced a turbulent employment environment," explained Chris Q. Davis, managing partner at the law firm. "Our latest post dives into these issues, especially New York employees who may have been furloughed and are now being formally terminated. In certain circumstances, they may have a course of action for unpaid wages or even wrongful termination. It depends and is case-by-case, so the best course of action is to reach out to an attorney for a case evaluation."
Persons who would like to learn more can visit the post at https://www.workingsolutionsnyc.com/have-you-been-furloughed-for-six-months-or-more-you-may-be-eligible-to-receive-sixty-days-of-pay-under-the-warn-act/. The post explains that in March 2020, thousands of New York workers were laid off as the pandemic began. And while some of these workers were able to return to the workplace, many were without work for months. If a person was furloughed for six months or more, they may be eligible to receive sixty days of pay and benefits under the New York Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (NY WARN Act). The WARN Act requires employers to send notices about certain employment decisions, such as mass layoffs, to employees and relevant government entities before the decisions are implemented.
While it is not up to the employee to figure out the law, any employee who feels that they may have been wrongfully terminated, not paid wages or overtime that was due to them, or furloughed and then not paid the appropriate severance pay or other pay for unpaid wages, should reach out to an employment attorney for a consultation. They can also visit the website for short, summary information. For example, the page on unpaid wages and overtime explains some of the basics about unpaid wages and overtime in New York. New York's laws are stringent but it may take a trained attorney to effectively confront activity by an employer.
