Workers to get earlier warning
A law aimed at warning workers of potential dislocations has been stiffened slightly with a revision mandating employers to notify the state government 60 days before closing or moving their operations.
The state formerly required employers to notify the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations 45 days in advance of a sale, relocation, closure or partial closure. The revised statute enacted by the Legislature this spring gives workers more time to make arrangements for job changes, transfers or training. In the case of some sales, employees keep their jobs. Gov. Ben Cayetano earlier this month signed the bill extending the notification period.
