US Layoffs

Compilation of public layoff notices by US employers under the WARN act

Making Layoff Data Accessible

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988 (the "WARN Act") is a US labor law which requires most employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 calendar-day advance notification of plant closings and mass layoffs of employees. Each state in the US manages its own database of public notices filed under this law. US Layoffs organizes data about these reports in one place.
