ST. LOUIS, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Peiffer Rosca Wolf law firm filed a class action in the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois, Springfield Division, today alleging ITT Educational Services, Inc., commonly known as "ITT Tech" or "ITT Technical Institute," violated its now-former employees' rights by not giving adequate notice as required by the WARN Act.
The Department of Education had been investigating ITT Tech since the Fall of 2014. On Friday September 2, 2016, ITT Tech employees were told that they were going to receive a "comp day" and that attendance was not required on the Tuesday following Labor Day Weekend. Former ITT Tech employees received an email on September 6, 2016 providing notice of termination.
The lawsuit seeks to recover, on behalf of all ITT Tech employees, 60 days' backpay, health insurance benefits, and retirement benefits.

The Peiffer Rosca Wolf lawyers are prepared to take further action and seek payment of backpay and other benefits on behalf of ITT Tech employees who were terminated without proper notice.
