Former Employees Sue Over Layoffs

Former employees of the Jerome Golden Center for Behavioral Health sued the mental health facility, claiming that it violated the 1988 Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN, Act when it shut down and laid off most of its employees in a matter of weeks. The WARN Act requires employers to give workers 60 days’ notice before laying off at least 50 employees or a third of its workforce in a 30-day period. In less than a month, the Behavioral Health center went from having an estimated 350 employees to no more than 20.

The Tampa Employment Law Firm of Kwall Barack Nadeau is honored to be standing up for the Employee Rights of these workers who were helping some of the most vulnerable members of our community before their unlawful terminations.
