Telltale Games faces a class action lawsuit filed by a former employee

A former Telltale Games employee has filed a class action lawsuit against the company following last Friday's mass redundancies.

Polygon reports that Vernie Roberts filed the lawsuit in San Francisco this Monday on behalf of himself and other laid-off staff. He claims Telltale Games let go of the roughly-250 employees without “advance written warning as required by the WARN Act”.

The 1988 federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act stipulates that companies greater than 100 employees must provide 60 days warning before mass layoffs (50 or more employees within 30 days).

The California version of WARN, which Roberts accuses the San Rafael-based studio of breaking, is even stricter, applying to business with as few as 75 employees.
