WorkOne can provide assistance to your business during times of economic uncertainty that result in downsizing, mass-layoffs, and plant closures. Rapid Response employment services provide a pro-active strategy designed to respond to worker layoffs and business closings quickly by providing immediate assistance to companies and impacted workers. A Rapid Response Team will be made available to help your impacted employees access resources and services that will assist them to transition back into the workforce quickly.
The Worker Retraining and Adjustment Act (WARN) was passed in 1988 to provide workers with time to prepare for the transition between the job they currently hold and a new job. Employers are required to provide a 60-day notice in advance of covered plant closings and covered mass layoffs. Notice must be provided to impacted workers, their representatives (i.e. a labor union), to the State Workforce Transition Unit, and the appropriate unit of local government.
To file a WARN Notice:
