Rosen Hotels Long-Term Layoffs Without Sixty-Day Notice Class Action

When employees are to be laid off for a time longer than six months, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act requires that the employer give them sixty days notice before they are released. But the complaint for this class action alleges that Rosen Hotels and Resorts, Inc. laid off around 1,000 workers from Rosen facilities in Florida without such notice and without any notice as to their employment status in the next six months.

The class for this action is all employees who worked at the facilities listed below and were laid off for longer than six months, as part of a mass layoff and/or plant closing ordered by Rosen on or about April 10, 2020 and thereafter.

  • Rosen Inn: 6327 International Dr. Orlando, FL 32819
  • Rosen Inn International: 7600 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
  • Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando: 9000 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
  • Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista: 8442 Palm Parkway, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32836
  • Midpointe Hotel: 9956 Hawaiian Court Orlando, Orlando, FL 32819
  • Rosen Plaza Hotel: 9700 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
  • Rosen Centre Hotel: 9840 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
  • Rosen Shingle Creek: 9939 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL 32819
  • 4000 Facility: 4000 Destination Parkway, Orlando, FL 32819

The plaintiff in this case, Yolanda Turner, worked at Rosen Inn in Orlando, Florida, along with around seventy-five other employees.

On or around April 10, 2020, Rosen told around a thousand employees at the Rosen Inn and at the other facilities above that they were being put on “temporary furlough.” During the next six months, they were not called back to work, nor did they receive any other notification about their employment status.

Rosen is subject to the WARN Act because it employed more than 100 people who collectively worked at least 4,000 hours per week, not including overtime, and also employed more than 50 employees at each facility. The layoff of April 10, 2020 involved at least fifty employees and 33% of each facility’s workforce, not including part-timers.

The company did not provide the workers with their pay for the next sixty days, nor did it provide accrued vacation and holiday pay, or cover medical expenses for the following sixty days.

The complaint asks that the court award the employees the unpaid “wages, salary, commissions, bonuses, accrued holiday pay, accrued vacation pay[,] pension and 401(k) contributions and other ERISA benefits that would have been covered and paid under the then applicable employee benefit plans had that coverage continued for that period, for sixty (60) working days … all determined in accordance with the WARN Act.”
