Chicago Sit-In Highlights Laid-Off Workers, Employers' Obligations, and WARN Act, According to Outten & Golden LLP

NEW YORK, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Chicago workers' sit-in shifted national attention to the plight of laid-off workers, the conflict also shows that millions of non-union employees face a nightmarish loss of health coverage benefits in layoffs and should know their legal rights, according to the national employee rights law firm of Outten & Golden LLP.
