On July 1, 2010 Iowa’s version of the federal WARN act went into effect.  The Iowa Workforce Development has a quick facts chart comparing the Iowa and federal law.   Additionally, the Iowa House Democrats posted a summary guide of the bill explaining the benefits and need for the law as well as a brief summary.  Now employers with at least 25 employees must give 30 days’ notice to employees or their representatives and IWD of layoffs or closings resulting in the termination of 25 employees or more.
