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.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving group of SJWs.

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

Good for them, especially now that the fucking CEO is talking about finishing Walking Dead with another dev. Make them pay every last fucking dime they owe you, guys.

Good luck with "not reasonably foreseeable". It sounds like they had all their eggs in one basket, and when that last funding company pulled out, their company collapsed. They should have had more funding and emergency strategies in place.
