Baltimore restaurant violated federal law with lay-offs

Although Maryland is an employment-at-will state, meaning employees and employers can generally choose to terminate employment at any time for almost any reason, there are exceptions to this rule. One exception applies to mass layoffs. Under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, companies with more than 40 employees generally must give workers 60 days' notice of layoffs. When companies cannot give this notice, they must pay workers 60 days worth of wages from the date notice is given.
