· Brian Levy: Protecting Local Business from Costly Litigation
Brian Levy is a labor and employment attorney specializing in litigation. His litigation experience includes representing employees and employers in single, multi-plaintiff, and collective action disputes before state and federal trial courts, appellate courts, and administrative agencies. Always keen to avoid costly court cases, when possible, Brian represents clients in various alternative dispute resolution methods, including mediation and arbitration. Brian represents employees in employment discrimination, wrongful discharge, breach of contract, non-compete agreements, and wage and hour disputes.
KXAN TV recently interviewed Brian about the proposed layoffs of employees in the Austin area due to fears of a recession. The story was issued following news that billionaire Elon Musk was letting thousands of employees go at Twitter due to a massive drop in revenue. On Friday, Twitter laid off thousands of employees in departments across the company one week after Mr. Musk acquired the company. Brian Levy’s interview reminded local employers about the importance of understanding the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act and the requirements for issuing notice to employees facing a layoff.
The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988 is a US labor law that protects employees, their families, and communities by requiring most employers with one hundred or more employees to provide sixty calendar-day advance notification of plant closings and mass layoffs of employees, as defined in the Act. The WARN Act gives employees and their families time to prepare for a loss of employment. Employees have time to look for new jobs and are expected to obtain training in a new skill or retrain existing skills to secure replacement work.
