The WARN Act helps ensure advance notice in cases of qualified plant closings and mass layoffs. The U.S. Department of Labor has issued these guides to provide workers and employers with an overview of their rights and responsibilities under the provisions of the WARN Act.
The following states have their own WARN regulations, which are generally stricter than those required by the Federal Department of Labor. The state WARN sites that I could locate are listed below. If a state isn’t listed then they conform to the Federal requirements, but in my searches, most states lack any type of WARN information, or they make it difficult to find.
All states have Rapid Response teams that are designed to assist those who are laid off or are planning a layoff. Contacts are listed here State Rapid Response Coordinators, so it may be beneficial to contact your local representative.
The Rapid Response team will provide you the means to maintain an income (unemployment insurance), information on health insurance options, access to skills upgrading and training resources, and much more.
