Legal Fireside Chat: Federal WARN and NJ WARN in Light of the Coronavirus Pandemic

September 17, 2020

Virtual Event

Price: $10 SHRM Foundation Donation

Facing the many challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, New Jersey employers are considering their obligations to their workforce in the event of a reduction in force.  If they’re considering layoffs, it’s imperative for employers to understand the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) requirements for issuing notice to their employees.  Fisher Philips attorneys Alvaro Hasani and Alyssa Musmanno will provide Morris County SHRM members an overview on how the Federal and NJ Warn Act may affect companies during the pandemic, provide insight on employers’ obligations and outline critical steps to carefully avoid or mitigate the risk of litigation.

Learning Outcomes:

  *   Discuss companies with furloughed employees and their future obligations under the Federal and NJ WARN Acts
  *   Discuss potential exceptions to the Federal and NJ WARN Acts
  *   Understand the guidance provided by the Federal Department of Labor regarding COVID-19 and the Federal WARN Act
  *   Discuss penalties for non-compliance with notice requirements under the Federal and NJ WARN Acts
