The Aberdeen American News reports that Jorge Alvarado claims he and others weren’t given proper notice before losing their jobs.

Northern Beef laid off 108 workers on April 24 and roughly another 260 on July 26.

Alvarado was laid off in July and filed the lawsuit against the beef plant individually and as a representative “for all similarly situated individuals” who were laid off within 90 days of July 19.
