Laser Spine Institute Employee Lawsuit Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act

On March 1, 2019, the Laser Spine Institute laid off hundreds of employees nationwide with no notice.

Wenzel Fenton Cabassa, P.A. and Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC have both filed lawsuits on behalf of former employees of Laser Spine Institute, LLC and related entities for their failure to provide advanced notice of the termination of hundreds of employees. The two Tampa based law firms have agreed to work together to protect the rights of the former employees.

You can see both complaints by following the links below.

More information about these lawsuits is available at LSIEmployeeLawsuit.com

What Is The WARN Act

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) protects workers, their families, and communities by requiring employers with 100 or more employees (generally not counting those who have worked less than six months in the last 12 months and those who work an average of less than 20 hours a week) to provide at least 60 calendar days advance written notice of a plant closing and mass layoff affecting 50 or more employees at a single site of employment.

Advance notice gives workers and their families some transition time to adjust to the prospective loss of employment, to seek and obtain other jobs, and if necessary, to enter skill training or retraining that will allow these workers to compete successfully in the job market.

Tampa Employment Lawyers

Kwall Barack Nadeau and Wenzel Fenton Cabassa both have significant experience in representing employees in class actions and under the WARN Act. The lawyers working on this case include three who are Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law. Certification is The Florida Bar’s highest level of evaluation of the competency and experience of attorneys in the areas of law approved for certification by the Supreme Court of Florida.
