Endicott Interconnect Being Sued by Former Employee

A former employee of Endicott Interconnect is suing the bankrupt company, saying EI violated state and federal law when it laid off hundreds of workers in September and October.
Mark Shreder filed the lawsuit, claiming EI violated the WARN Act.

That act requires employers to file a notice of layoffs if it's going to let go of a certain number of workers.

Shreder's attorney Charles Ercole said he will ask the court to certify the suit as a class action within 60 days.

If that happens Ercole said the 250 to 300 people laid off in September and October could potentially be plaintiffs.

"The two layoffs in particular that occurred in September and October of this year, we're told that several hundred people were laid off. If that's true, again based on the head count, that would violate the Federal and New York Warn Acts," said Charles Ercole, a partner in the lawfirm of Klehr, Harrison, Harvey, and Branzburg.

A spokesperson for Integrian holdings, which purchased the assets of the bankrupt Endicott Interconnect, declined comment on the suit. The suit is asking for damages including 90 days of wages and benefits.
