Labor and employment associate Alexa Miller authored an article for the New Jersey Law Journal that addresses what New Jersey employers need to know to prepare for the amended NJ WARN Act once it takes effect 90 days after the State of Emergency declared in Executive Order 103 is lifted.
In the article, Miller explains the scope of coverage under the amended NJ WARN Act and what would trigger the legislation. She also discusses mandatory severance payment obligations under the amended act.
Miller highlights that employers will need to conduct an analysis to determine whether they are subject to federal and state WARN laws and whether a mass layoff or plant closure triggers federal or state WARN notice requirements. Given the many current flexible remote work arrangements, employers should also consider how remote work impacts the analysis under federal and state WARN laws, she notes.
