Even before a company files for bankruptcy protection, multiple employment and labor issues can arise. This webinar addresses the ramifications of the failure of a debtor to comply with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), which requires employers to provide written notice in advance of covered plant closings and mass layoffs under certain conditions and may subject the debtor to liability. It also examines employee wage and claim issues that are often triggered by the filing for bankruptcy protection, as well as the special treatment provided by the Bankruptcy Code for collective bargaining agreements and retiree health care benefits, which makes modification or rejection of such agreements more difficult during the bankruptcy proceeding.
