Employees sue Jevic

Jevic Transportation employees suddenly thrown out of work are suing the New Jersey-based trucking company.

The Delanco company announced Monday it that it's shutting down after 27 years in business and is seeking bankruptcy protection.

As a result, roughly 1,200 employees abruptly lost their jobs.

Now lawyers for two employees say they are suing and are seeking class-action status to include all affected employees.

Lawyer Jack Raisner says the workers weren't given the 60 days' advance written notice required by federal law.

He filed a lawsuit Wednesday in federal court in Delaware claiming the workers should get 60 days of wages, commissions and bonuses, plus accrued holiday and vacation pay and retirements and health benefits.
