Skip to comments.Lockheed accepts Obama’s ‘guidance’ and will delay sending layoff notices until after election

As we discussed on Saturday, the Obama administration has offered to cover expenses (court-ordered penalties, severence costs, etc) for contractors willing to ignore the WARN Act by delaying sending layoff notices to tens of thousands of their employees who will likely be hit by Pentagon budget cuts.

Yes, I believe that falls very neatly under the RICO act.
“would there be enough cajones between the two chambers to IMPEACH?”
Not by a longshot.
disagree ... promise or not, unless the deal is in writing they are breaking the law counting on the breaking of another law to make them whole. There is a risk and it is the risk that gets disclosed.
If there wasn't enough cajones to remove Slick from there most certainly isn't any to remove Zero. Anyway under no scenario that I can think will you get 60 votes in the Senate for removal!
Just having the House deliver a bill of impeachment is a waste of time. The media will spin it as nothing more then a racist political act. The soccer moms & independents will swoon as they always do when they are required to think. The Rats will wear it as a badge of honor just like Slick does.
ZERO MUST GO!
Without the brake of another term think of what illegality he and his minions will do and the media will applaud !
Getting Lockheed to break the Wagner Act will pale in significance!
Lockheed is about to get rewarded with many lucrative contracts.
Hopefully their shareholders are ready to file suit against them, should the cuts actually happen.
Therein lies the problem. Under what authority does Obama provide the funds for those expenses?
And even if he has the authority, what if Obama isn't a position to provide them?
If I were a lawyer in HR at Lockheed, I would be pointing out that this is an empty promise, and that the company puts themselves at significant risk.
You are, of course, 100% correct.
OTOH, if they tell their shareholders and some of their shareholders are also employees, then they have breached the contract with obama, and he no longer needs to indemnity them against any penalties, does he?
So by not telling the shareholders they are insuring that the shareholders don’t need to be told, because the shareholders won’t get hurt, unless they are told they could get hurt, in which case they will get hurt.
(insert obscure quote about webs and deception here)...
an app a Czar for that...
Well....then there’s this:
So, I can hardly wait for the company’s next press release....
It’s like any MOB action, your only reward is that you don’t get killed.
They just got a service contract at Cherry Point, NC or are about to. I just got contacted for a lucrative RADAR position today! I don’t need it, just saying.
The Truth Fairy will leave it under their pillows.
Apparently as much as using fake ID, stolen SS numbers, and arming terrorists abroad.
I am a shareholder....what actions are possible here?
WINNER! Notify corporate of your intent to sue should they fail to notify the shareholders that they are joining a criminal enterprise to deprive employees their lawfully required layoff notice under the WARN act on November 2.
Remind them that although you can’t sue the government, you CAN bloody well sue them.
“criminal enterprise” should be “criminal conspiracy”
