Ex-employees sue Oxford Automotive

SouthBendTribune.com: “The heart of the lawsuit is the nearly three-year fight for benefits, delayed because, the complaint alleges, Oxford continually lied to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and the U.S. Department of Labor about production in Mexico.

According to the complaint, Congress has authorized additional support for displaced workers who could show their jobs were shipped to NAFTA partners Canada or Mexico. Under the NAFTA-TAA (Transitional Adjustment Assistance) program, workers are then qualified for aid such as training, additional unemployment and relocation.

The trick in this case, though, was proving jobs were shipped to Mexico.”
