Employment & Labor: Reduction in Force & WARN Act

Best & Flanagan’s Employment & Labor team has successfully worked with employers to execute large and smaller scale reductions in force. We provide customized advice about employee reductions that meet the employer’s immediate needs while also honoring our client’s overall employment philosophy. Our prevailing goal is to minimize conflict and avoid potentially costly litigation.

We provide advice on the federal WARN Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Older Worker Benefit Protection Act, ERISA and state laws in the context of reductions in force and in transactions such as mergers, sales and asset transactions. Our personalized approach ensures compliance with all applicable laws, as well as consistency with each client’s unique objectives and culture.
