Yesterday, a lawsuit was filed in the District Court of Delaware, alleging that Univita laid-off roughly 1,000 workers without giving them 60 days advance written notice, in violation of the Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification Act (the “WARN Act”), 29 U.S.C. § 2101, et seq. The action seeks — on behalf of plaintiff and other similarly situated employees — a judgment for unpaid wages, salary, commissions, bonuses, accrued holiday pay, accrued vacation pay, pension and 401(k) contributions and other COBRA benefits, for 60 days, which “would have been covered and paid under the then-applicable employee benefit plans had that coverage continued for that period, all determined in accordance with the WARN Act.”
