In 2009 Gibbs Law Group and co-counsel filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of former Spansion employees. The lawsuit alleged that Spansion (which later merged with Cypress Semiconductor) failed to provide the terminated employees from California and Texas with advance notice of the layoff, as required by the federal Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (“WARN Act“) and California WARN Act.
The bankruptcy court approved the class action settlement negotiated by Gibbs Law Group and co-counsel in 2010. The settlement was valued at $8.568 million and was distributed to former employees in 2010 and resulted in more than 750 former Spansion employees receiving direct cash payments.
