Wyoming Layoff laws & HR compliance analysis

Wyoming Layoff: What you need to know

While Wyoming has no layoff notice requirements of its own, state agencies assist in enforcing the requirements of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act).
The WARN Act imposes restrictions on the way layoffs are handled. It is designed to give employees advance notice of the layoff in order to find another job or to seek retraining in a new occupation and to give the state adequate preparation to assist the affected workers. There is a comprehensive discussion of the WARN Act.

Employers must pay discharged employees any wages due within 5 working days of the date of termination of employment (WY Stat. Sec. 27-4-104).
The WARN Act requires employers to notify their state dislocated worker unit when mass layoffs or plant closings occur. Employers in Wyoming should visit http://www.wyomingworkforce.org for further details and contact information.
