The state is mobilizing resources to help the 86 employees of a Marshall County plant that is set to close in the next few months. Plymouth-based Whitley Products filed a WARN notice with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development last week. It’s a legal step that requires companies with 100 or more employees to file a 60-day notice of any plant closing or mass layoff. A copy of the notice is shared with employees.

A spokesman for the Department of Workforce Development says it allows the state to mobilize a rapid response team to help transition affected workers into other employment. He says the state offers a variety of programs and encourages all employees to register with the local Work One office as soon as possible to get the process started.
