Tulsa, OK – Ex-Arrow Trucking employees may pursue wage claims

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Former employees of bankrupt Arrow Trucking Co. will be allowed to file wage claims after a bankruptcy judge ruled the company violated federal law.

Judge Terrence Michael ruled that Tulsa-based Arrow violated the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The WARN Act requires companies with more than 100 employees to give at least 60 days written notice of plans to close the business.

Arrow had an estimated 1,400 employees when it shut down its offices on Dec. 22 with no prior notification. The company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Jan. 8.

Bankruptcy trustee Patrick Malloy III says employees are eligible for up to $10,950 in unpaid wages and WARN Act damages.
