The Economic Stabilization Act (aka Maryland’s “WARN” Act) Coming October 1, 2020

Maryland will be adopting a version of the Federal WARN Act – that requires certain employers to provide advanced notice of lay-offs – beginning on October 1, 2020. The Economic Stabilization Act, will require employers who have operated in Maryland for at least 1 year with 50 or more employees to provide 60-days written notice if a reduction in operations – for any reason – could potentially lead to lay-offs.
