Severence Package/WARN Act

My company is closing down and doing mass lay-offs. They are offering a Serverence package, however the terms were not consistent with that of the WARN act. WARN act states that an employer must give 60 days notice if a plant is closing or mass lay-offs. We were only given two weeks notice. Are they obligated to pay for the remaining 45 days left?

it depends

the answer depends on a variety of factors, to determine if the company is covered and/or is required to comply. if what you believe to be an "illegal" severance package is being offered company- or even department-wide, it is worth all your while to see an employment attorney experienced in california employment law.
please call me if you wish to have a free phone consultation, to see if it is worth our while to have a face-to-face meeting.
