IDOL Subpoenas United States Steel Corporation

The Illinois Department of Labor is issuing a subpoena to the United States Steel Corporation to investigate its compliance with the Illinois WARN Act.  The WARN Act requires employers with 75 or more full-time employees to give workers and state and local government officials 60 days advance notice of a plant closing or mass layoff.  IDOL was informed Tuesday of a mass layoff at Granite City Works in Granite City.  This follows layoffs that were announced in September.  More than one-thousand workers will have lost their jobs at a result of the layoffs.
