On December 15, 2009, the New York Department of Labor (NYDOL) extended the lifespan of its Emergency Rulemaking concerning the New York WARN Act through February 12, 2010. As addressed in prior eAuthorities, the NY WARN Act differs from the federal WARN Act in many key respects, such as requiring 90 rather than 60 days notice, applying to employers with 50 rather than 100 employees, and covering certain job losses of 25 or more employees, rather than 50 or more employees. We have been advised by the NYDOL that a final Rulemaking concerning the NY WARN Act is expected in the coming months.
