Ohio follows Federal requirements under the WARN Act which provides protection to workers, their families and communities by requiring employers to provide written notice at least 60 calendar days in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services' Rapid Response Unit.  Employers required to provide notice include businesses with more than 100 full time workers who are laying off at least 50 people at a single site of employment or employers who layoff 50-499 workers and that accounts for 33% of the total active workforce at a single site of employment.

Included in this site are WARN notices submitted to the Rapid Response Unit from 1996 to the present and are arranged by calendar year. Use the links to the left to view an overview of WARN, the current year's notices, archived notices, and related sites for additional WARN information.
