California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
The notice was more like a little over a week. there were over 50 employees laid off.
I have been off work for a month. I have nothing in writing as to what this new position is offering or if it a positive offer yet. I don't know when this new position would start.
I understand there is a Warren Act. I know you are referring to the Warn Act. I feel I will have to talk to another lawyer. Sorry
David,We are referring to the same law, I can absolutely assure you of that. Non-attorneys commonly confuse the spelling of the law, and that confusion is evidenced widely across the internet, such as here: http://answers.ask.com/business/finance/what_is_the_warren_act
