Skip to comments.Obama administration tells contractors again: Donít issue layoff notices
Posted on 09/29/2012 7:41:34 AM PDT by Perdogg
The Obama administration issued new guidance intended for defense contractors Friday afternoon, reiterating the administrations position that the companies should not be issuing layoff notices over sequestration.
The Labor Department issued guidance in July saying it would be inappropriate for contractors to issue notices of potential layoffs tied to sequestration cuts. But a few contractors, most notably Lockheed Martin, said they still were considering whether to issue the notices which would be sent out just days before the November election.

It’s not for him to say.
Don’t send those notices out. let’s make it a surprise! Workers love surprises. Don’t you just love this “most transparent administration” in history?
“Let it happen AFTER the election! That way, if voters blame me, it’s too late. Suckers!”
God forbid someone find out what’s really going on in this country!
Did they just realize that cutting Defense would also cut jobs in all the companies supplying Defense Dept ,Oh never thought of that ,D’oh
I don’t put it past oblahblah to write an EO making it illegal to layoff anyone or close a business.
Do you want to get rid of this DIM cabal in this election...??
Shine the bright light on these defense cuts...
Do what you need to do in light of your own projections and business expectations....
WITH the sequestration cutbacks (&Taxmageddon) looming...
THEN MAKE IT ALL VERRRRY PUBLIC!!
Any contractor that doesn’t give the warning notice WILL have to legally cover it out of his pocket - unless Obama can figure out a way to waive it, or make up the difference. Anyone working HR at those contractors who don’t follow the law here risks jail time.
They’re welcome to take Obama at his word...but there’s an awful long history of people that have done that and ended up quite disappointed.
Wasn’t sequestration the Most Intelligent President Ever’s idea? Chickens now coming home to roost...
The order is already in the book. The liberal playbook is right out of Atlas Shrugged. They think they can change the ending. One of the biggest Libs I know, an Obama elector last election, has this on his desk front and center.
BIG FLATS, N.Y. (AP) Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., citing declining military budgets and a tough economy, said it will close its plant in upstate New York and eliminate all 570 jobs.
Employees at the 5-year-old facility, which has seen its ranks dwindle from a peak of 1,300, were told Monday that the plant would close as of Dec. 31 and its work transitioned to Sikorsky's West Palm Beach, Fla., facility.
Why does anyone find this different from the normal everyday information from the mac daddy administration, everyday they lie hundreds of time to the American voters to make themselves appear like they have our best interest at heart.
Obama can just tell them not to obey a law?
Most likely there are contracts involved especially if unions are involved. Is Obama telling them to ignore legal contract clauses concerning layoff? Keep an eye on this one.
obama has already told them the government would cover their legal penalties.
