What is the WARN Act?
The WARN Act is a federal law that requires companies with at least one hundred employees to provide advanced notice of mass layoffs. In most circumstances, an employer must notify their employees at least sixty days before a mass layoff or facility shutdown. If you were provided notice of less than sixty days, your employer may be in violation of this act.
Most employees must be notified, including both hourly and salaried employees. However, employees who have worked less than six months in the last twelve months or who work less than an average of twenty hours a week do not have to be given sixty days’ notice.
There are some exceptions to this law, but generally all employers with one hundred employees must comply. Even if you are unsure if your employer is in violation of the WARN Act, you should consult with an experienced Tennessee employment law attorney at the Gilbert Firm. We will help you determine if you have a case and gather the appropriate evidence to achieve the results you deserve.

- Lost and unpaid wages
- Lost benefits
- Accrued and unpaid vacation days
