ITT Tech Facing Lawsuits From Employees

September 9, 2016

ITT Technical Institutes is now facing multiple lawsuits from employees who allege they were not warned before the institution announced its closure Tuesday, according to The Indianapolis Star.

The lawsuits allege that the for-profit chain, which employed about 8,000 people, violated the federal Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification Act. That law requires a notice of 60 days before mass layoffs and affects employers with more than 100 employees and business sites with more than 50 workers.

ITT announced its closure Tuesday following the U.S. Department of Education's decision to ban the for-profit from accepting new students who receive federal student loans.
