Analyze this situation from the perspective of the company managers and the HR department by addressing the questions below. Before beginning your analysis, read Section 639.9 "When may notice be given less than 60 days in advance" of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. This can be found on the Department of Labor Web site: http://www.dol.gov/dol/allcfr/ETA/Title_20/Part_639/toc.htm. This is a brief section of the act, which is easy to read.
Answer the following questions in your report:
Do you agree with management's human resource plan of action for the immediate plant closing? Why or why not? Explain in detail and include the legal implications. What does the WARN Act say that allows the plant to close inside of the 60-day notice period?
What possible alternatives do the managers and HR have in handling this scenario? If no other attractive options exist and they must depart in two days, what kinds of assistance can the plant give the newly unemployed workers? Given the financial restrictions, is outplacement assistance a possibility?
