What is WARN?

Warn Tracker looks at upcoming layoffs from companies announcing workforce reductions.

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act helps ensure advance notice in cases of qualified plant closings and mass layoffs. The U.S. Department of Labor has compliance assistance materials to help workers and employers understand their rights and responsibilities under the provisions of WARN.

The WARN Act is a federal law that was enacted in 1988. Employees and government officials have to be notified 60 days in advance of mass layoffs or plant closures. If a plant closing will result in losing 50 full-time positions within a month, or a company is planning a workforce reduction of 500 full-time employees at one location or 33% of a company’s full-time workforce notice has to be given.
