Companies that have announced plans to either close a facility or conduct a mass personnel layoff are required to file with the state, under certain circumstances, a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification—commonly called a WARN notice. WARN notices trigger our Rapid Response team into action, providing transition support for the people impacted by the action.

The following summary reports detail the companies that have filed WARN notices with the state.

All WARN notices are public documents and are made available to the media upon request.
