House Lawmakers Ask OMB for Sequestration, WARN Act Guidance Docs

Three members of the House Education and the Workforce Committee have asked the Office of Management and Budget to provide them with documents and communication related to guidance on how contractors should address the potential of sequestration.

A Monday release says Committee Chairman John Kline (R-Minn.), Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) and Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) sent the letter, dated Oct. 5, to OMB acting director Jeff Zients.

OMB recently advised contractors that the federal government would cover severance costs related to layoffs if they did not issue notices 60 days in advance of the scheduled start date of sequestration, Jan. 2.

Under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, most business are required to notify workers of large layoff initiatives at least 60 days in advance of job losses.

The lawmakers asked OMB to provide several types of documents and guidance, including information on its WARN Act guidance and similar information regarding Labor Department WARN Act guidance issued in August.
