WARN Notices

In 1988, Congress passed the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act to provide workers with sufficient time to prepare for the transition between the jobs they currently hold and new jobs. It also provides protection to workers, their families and communities by requiring employers to provide 60 days notice in advance of covered plant closings and covered mass layoffs. This notice must be provided to either affected workers or their representatives (i.e. a labor union), to the state dislocated worker unit and the appropriate unit of local government.

Employers wishing to submit a WARN Notice should send the notification to:

Indiana Department of Workforce Development
Dislocated Worker Unit
10 North Senate Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2277
Email: warn-notice@dwd.in.gov

For additional information on WARN Act requirements please refer to the links below or phone the U.S. Department of Labor at (202) 693-3500.
