Abstract: In their analysis of the effects of advance notification of plant closings, Nord and Ting (ILR Review, July 1991) claim that much can be expected of current legislation that mandates a 60-day prenotification standard because the outcomes of voluntary arrangements, in an interval preceding implementation of the legislation, point to substantial reductions in both joblessness and earnings losses for workers given over two months' warning of their impending layoff. They also suggest that many of the disparate results reported in the earlier plant closing literature reflect the inability to distinguish between formal and informal notice on the basis of the 1984 and 1986 Displaced Worker Surveys.
