In early September 2016, ITT Technical Institute closed all 138 of its campuses, six of which were located in Indiana, shortly after the U.S. Department of Education stopped the school from enrolling new students who use federal financial aid to pay for tuition. ITT is a for-profit college that has been under close scrutiny by state and federal investigators for allegedly using aggressive recruitment tactics to gain students, perpetrating fraud against students, and engaging in predatory lending tactics.
In a statement issued on its website, ITT terminated nearly 8,000 employees without advance notice. Displaced employees have filed class action lawsuits against ITT Tech for violating the federal Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification Act (WARN), which requires a notice of 60 days in the case of mass layoffs.
