The WARN Act gives employees the assurance of notices of coming layoffs and plant closings. The WARN Act is law and was passed by a veto-proof Democrat Congress under Reagan. WARN BECAME LAW WITHOUT REAGAN’S SIGNATURE. It forces employers with more than 100 employees to give a 60 calendar-day notice of mass layoffs and plant closings. This lawless administration is using WARN by WARNING contractors to ignore it, and promises taxpayers will pay any legal fees should the company be sued for non-compliance.
But the Friday guidance from the Office of Management and Budget raised the stakes in the dispute, telling contractors that they would be compensated for legal costs if layoffs occur due to contract cancellations under sequestration — but only if the contractors follow the Labor guidance.
The guidance said that if plant closings or mass layoffs occur under sequestration, then “employee compensation costs for [Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification] WARN act liability as determined by a court” would be paid for covered by the contracting federal agency. Source: The Hill
This happened in August 2012 as well. The Department of Defense was/is readying to layoff ONE MILLION employees. The pink slips and notices required from the DOD will land in the hands of the soon-to-be unemployed FOUR DAYS BEFORE THE NOVEMBER ELECTIONS.
Trying to measure the lawless of this administration is futile. Their crimes reach across every Department, every cabinet position, every appointee and every Executive Order.
Obama is responsible for this untimely problem. He has insisted on having all the taxpayer dollars on his side of the ledger sheet, rather than sacrificing his ObamaPhones, unemployment polices, and skyrocketing government worker salaries, as well as refusing to address entitlements. The Obama family, itself, has cost taxpayers 2500% more than the whole British Royal Family. Get a strong visual of sending these two to Chicago. Let them eat cake and crow. Also talking about WARN, The Other McCain.
