Philadelphia Employment Lawyers: WARN Act Class Action Lawsuit

June 6th, 2016

A former employee of TMP IPSCO Koppel Tubulars LLC has filed a class action lawsuit, alleging that the tubular producer company unlawfully terminated employees and withheld wages and benefits. The lead plaintiff  filed the complaint in April of 2016 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania in Pittsburgh, claiming that his former employer violated the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. On behalf of all similarly situated plaintiffs, he is requesting a jury trial, and is seeking compensation for unpaid wages, salary, commissions and bonuses, as well as interest, attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements, and other relief.

The employee alleges that he was terminated without cause along with 200 others. He claims that as a result, he lost wages, benefits, and money that he was lawfully entitled to. He also claims that the company failed to provide 60 days’ advance written notice of termination as is required by the WARN Act. In addition, he claims that he and the other plaintiffs were denied wages, salary, commissions, bonuses, accrued holiday and vacation pay, 401(k) contributions, and health insurance.

A spokesperson for TMK IPSCO said that the lawsuit is without merit and that the company will be filing a motion to dismiss, noting that the plaintiff has returned to work at TMK IPSCO as the company has had need to recall a number of workers due to demand.

The plaintiff works in TMK IPSCO’s Harmony Township location. The company also operates a plant in Koppel.

The WARN Act requires that most employers of more than 100 employees provide advance notice before a mass layoff. The notice period is intended to give employees the chance to prepare for being out of work so that they can get a new job as quickly as possible.
