Former Bake-Line Workers Could Split WARN Settlement

The company was accused of violating the WARN Act, which requires companies to give employees 60 days' notice when they will be laid off or lose their jobs.

A group of former employees filed a civil suit, after the snack-maker closed its doors in January 2004 without giving any notice to about 300 employees.

The New York attorneys representing 176 former employees who filed the complaint say a Delaware bankruptcy court, a company trustee and the plaintiffs must still approve the proposed settlement.
