PFGBest Hit With WARN Suit
Chicago futures brokerage PFGBest faces a lawsuit by a former employee who claims that company failed to give him and about 100 other employees 60 days notice of a mass layoff as required by law.
Plaintiff Ronald Kotulak claims that employees were not given enough notice of the company’s filing for bankruptcy and shutting down, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. He says that they were informed of the layoffs the same day the company filed for bankruptcy, which violates the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act that required at least 60 days notice.
Kotulak seeks to represent all the employees who were let go and wants 60 days of wages and benefits for the class, according to Sun-Times.
