JDL, 60 days notice in the case of a layoff has nothing to do with
sequestration. It is a requirement of the WARN act which covers most employers
with over 50 employees. There are three major exceptions to the act with the
primary exception being warn notice is not required if between 50 and 499
employees are effected in a single location but the number is less than 33% of
the employees in that site. Also if under 50 employees are effected no warn
notice is required...so the whole article has a whole lot of speculation in it.
...firing these people as a result of the Obama sequestration...".The sequestration was agreed to by republicans.Republicans own the
sequestration as much as Democrats.Nice try though Sen. Inhofe
@ alt134There IS NO MONEY to spend thus jobs will be lost. A banker
once counseled me with this wisdom and it has served me well for 30 years in
business. He simply said, "Debt is not equity". The
Democrats and Republicans all know the truth of the saying above but ignore it
at the peril of this once great creditor nation. To answer our other
question, Sequestration says that 60 days notice must be given if major layoffs
are expected. The math is easy, if sequestration begins Jan 1 2013, sixty days
notice is Nov 2, 1012 only 5 days before the election on Nov, 6. It's right
in the body of the story.
But hey at least now Republicans are aware that spending cuts cost jobs... only
took them a few years to figure that out...
How exactly is a sequestration scheduled for January 1st a November surprise?
Senator Graham said all that needs to be said. But we'll keep electing
these goons. Why?
Republicans already agreed to the sequestration. If they try to overturn it at
this point, can any of them ever be trusted again?
