WARN Notices

WARN notices are required by the Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act to provide advance notice in cases of qualified plant closings and mass layoffs. A fact sheet on the WARN Act is available at The U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration website. You can view the current year's WARN notices in the table below or download PDFs of previous years' notices. If you would like to view individual WARN letters, you can find them on the Michigan Workforce Development Agency WARN Notices webpage.
