(July 6, 2016, 1:41 PM EDT) -- ST. LOUIS — A trucking company that purchased another is liable for Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act violations despite a clause in the asset purchase agreement (APA) that stated that it had no liability, the Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled July 5, finding that the transaction was actually a sale of business (Stuart R. Day, et al. v. Celadon Trucking Services, Inc., No. 15-1711, 8th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 12365).
