Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)



Question: What notices must be given before an employee is terminated or laid off?

Answer: The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has no requirements for notice to an employee prior to termination or lay-off. In certain cases, employers must give the workers advanced notice of mass layoffs or plant closure. The Warn Act provides specific information on advance notice, employer responsibility and workers rights during mass layoffs or plant closure.

Some states may have requirements for employee notification prior to termination or lay-off.
