Fleetwood sued by ex-employees

March 14, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. was sued for back wages by two ex-workers who claim that more than 800 employees were fired without required warning.

The recreational vehicle and manufactured home maker violated the federal Warn Act by failing to give workers 60 days' notice of a mass layoff, according to a proposed class-action lawsuit filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Riverside, where Fleetwood is based.

A Fleetwood spokesman said employees were given proper notice and authorities were notified.
