Telltale Class Action Suit

The ugly aspects of the Telltale layoffs story is getting uglier, as Polygon reports that laid-off former employees have launched a class action lawsuit against Telltale for violating the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. Word is: "Under the WARN Act, businesses that undertake plant closings or mass layoffs with fewer than 60 days’ advance notice are subject to significant financial penalties. Rather than pay fines, a company must give affected employees back pay and benefits for each day of violation." GameDaily.biz notes Telltale may be able to contest this suit since the law allows for "business circumstances that were not reasonably foreseeable." They also say that it may be possible to successfully sue under California's own version of the law, which does not offer similar allowances for unforeseen circumstances.

They just stated that no game but the first Walking Dead turned a profit. I think them closing was foreseeable.
