September 12, 2018 – Plaintiff Jonathon Walker (“Plaintiff”) on behalf of himself and a putative class of similarly situated former employees of Product Quest Manufacturing, LLC, Ei, LLC, Scherer Labs International, LLC, Product Quest Logistics, LLC, JBTRS, LLC, and PQ Real Estate LLC (the “Debtors” or “Defendants”) filed with the Court a class action adversary proceeding complaint for violation of Warn Act 29 U.S.C. § 2101, et seq. and violation of North Carolina Wage and Hour Act [Docket No. 36]. The Plaintiffs allege, “Plaintiff, along with approximately 296 similarly situated employees, were terminated as part of a mass layoff ordered by Defendants on or about September 6, 2018 at its facility in Kannapolis, North Carolina. Another 300 or so employees who worked at the facility in Daytona, Florida were terminated on or about August 12, 2018 when Defendants ceased operations there. In carrying out these terminations, Defendants failed to give Plaintiff and other similarly situated employees at least sixty (60) days’ advance notice of termination, as required by the WARN Act. As a consequence of such a WARN Act violation, Plaintiff and other similarly situated employees seek his statutory remedies, together with accrued but unpaid vacation pay and unpaid wages for time worked.”
