Murphy Anderson Announces Settlement of WARN Act Case Brought by Class of Former Employees of Medtech and Radians College

August 7, 2017

A United States District Court judge in the Eastern District of Virginia ordered final approval of a class action settlement for a case brought under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act).

Murphy Anderson filed suit in 2017 on behalf of former employees of Radians College and Medtech College in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. The suit alleged that when the four campuses abruptly closed in July and August 2016, the employees were entitled to 60-days written notice of the mass layoff under the WARN Act.

Murphy Anderson attorneys Mark Hanna and Rachel Capler were lead counsel. Murphy Anderson was assisted by co-counsel, Tony Paris and John Philo, at the Maurice & Jane Sugar Law Center for Economic Justice in Detroit, Michigan.
