Former employee files lawsuit against Solyndra
FREMONT, Calif. (KGO) -- An employee recently laid off by Fremont solar panel maker, Solyndra, has filed a lawsuit against the company.
Solyndra laid off all 1,100 of its employees and announced it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on August 31st.The new lawsuit claims Solyndra violated state and federal rules that require companies to give 60 days notice before laying off more than 50 workers.
Solyndra had previously stated it did not file notice because it was working to find out a way to save the jobs right up until the bankruptcy announcement. The suit is seeking class action status on behalf of every employee laid off by the company.
