R&H Faces 2 Class-Action Suits Filed by Employees
Feb 19 13
Two R&H employees filed class-action suits against the company on February 15, 2013, claiming that its decision to fire hundreds of workers just before filing for bankruptcy protection violated labor laws requiring 60 days' advance notice of terminations. The company filed for Chapter 11 protection on February 13, 2013. Employees were informed of the layoffs on Feb. 10 and 11, according to the suits. The class action suits cite violations of the 1988 Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires larger companies to give employees at least 60 days' advance notice of plant closings or mass layoffs.
Rhythm & Hues Lays Off 200 Employees as its Los Angeles-Area Operations
Feb 12 13
Rhythm & Hues has laid off 200 employees as its Los Angeles-area operations file for bankruptcy protection. The layoffs come as the El Segundo company, whose work on the movie 'Life of Pi' is up for a visual effects Oscar, is preparing to seek bankruptcy protection from creditors amid mounting financial difficulties. The layoffs and planned bankruptcy filing are the latest signs of distress among California-based visual effects companies, which have had an increasingly difficult time competing with companies in Canada, Britain and India that benefit from tax credits or cheaper labor to produce visual effects at a lower cost.
