The federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), which prohibits employers from terminating workers without giving them 60 days’ notice in advance, is at the center of the litigation. According to California state law, employees must be given a warning if there are over 50 layoffs in a 30-day period, according to attorney and owner of The Bloom Firm Lisa Bloom.

Hey Twitter workers, you’re getting fired tomorrow! Important information from a California employment lawyer (me)
Due to California’s “WARN” statute, Twitter must provide you 60 days’ notice before a significant layoff.
A 50 employee layoff during a 30-day window qualifies.
I am aware that you missed that notice.

The lawsuits inevitably target Twitter for breaking the California WARN Act in addition to the federal WARN Act. As Twitter might urge the laid-off workers to sign separation documents, thereby depriving them of their legal employment rights, the complaint also seeks to prevent Twitter from avoiding the enforcement of WARN instructions.

Twitter has not yet responded officially to the lawsuits being brought up against the company. Shannon Liss-Riordan, who filed the complaint and has previously engaged Tesla in court, told Bloomberg that the lawsuit’s goal is to “make sure that employees are aware that they should not sign away their rights and that they have an avenue for pursuing their rights.”
