Verified: White House Doesn’t Want Layoff Notice Until After Election So They Look Better
These federal contractors are required by law to give 60 days notice to their workers that they will be let go. That happens to fall on November 1, just before the 2012 election. So the White House is requesting that they postpone the layoff notices — breaking federal law — and promising to pick up the tab for any potential lawsuits, at taxpayer’s expense. In essence, Obama will spend taxpayer dollars so that employers can violate the law and help him get re-elected.
