Each year we have shut down during holiday time. Some times it is four weeks or five and others it could be three weeks depending on business. This year our client is renovating,and some of our employees will not be working for approx 2 months.(December 19 - February 12. About 44 -45 of our employees out of approx 133 will be working. Since we will only be shut down approx 2 months am I correct to say that WE ARE NOT covered under the WARN Act and do not have an obligation to send out notices because shut down is not six months or more? (Taken from Definition of WARN's "loss of employment.) Thank you

Yes, an "employment loss" occurs when the employees are terminated, laid off for at least six months, or work hours are reduced more than 50% in each month of a six-month period.
