WARN: Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification


If businesses are completely closing, business owners should inform their employees of this in writing and that all employees are laid off until further notice. It is very important for businesses to also file a WARN Notice.

Both of these actions help track closures and provide workers with documentation to claim Unemployment Insurance. WARN Notices help trigger additional state and federal funding for our region that can be utilized in flexible ways to help people during this crisis.
