Support John Kerry’s FORWARN Act.

Imagine that, I actually agree with Sen. John Kerry.

STEVE EDER and JAMES DREW staff writers for the toledoblade.com reports that Senators Kerry and Stabenow support Senator Sherrod Brown’s reform of the WARN Act.

I have often stated that employers are finding numerous ways around the reporting requirements of the WARN Act. I only hope that the final reform passes with solutions that closes the Bill’s loopholes.

I am usually against additional regulations on American employers, but if employers had to provide comprehensive reporting on layoffs and restructuring, we might see a little less of the under-the-table shuffling of staff to hide layoffs and offshoring activities.
