Reduction In Force And Plant Closings: Help For Employers
Many federal and state laws govern the closing of manufacturing, industrial and assembly plants in California and the reduction of workforces. Employers seeking to reduce the number of employees through a plant closing or mass layoffs run the risk of legal action and costly lawsuits.
At Bononi Law Group, LLP, we have worked with employers in Southern California for over two decades and have managed hundreds of plant closings and large-scale workforce reductions. We can work to ensure that you meet your business and labor goals while remaining in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
The attorney team at Bononi Law Group, LLP, can handle all legal aspects of workforce reductions and plant closings, including:
- Issues related to collective bargaining
- Pensions and benefits under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA)
- The federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN)
By thoroughly addressing all these issues before a plant closing, your organization can avoid charges, legal claims, litigation and negative publicity. For instance, upon your decision to reduce your workforce, we can notify your employees as well as applicable local and state governments, minimizing the risk of legal infringements and employee- and union-initiated litigation.
