    I have not. Going to have to take a look when I get back.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What do you think of that WARN law, should employers have to tell employees of the protected group they are closing shop down.

    Generally Counties can not pass laws as they are not legislative in nature, now in Ohio we do have 2 Counties that have an Executive-Council form of government, and can pass laws not in conflict under the "general laws" under Home Rule, the other 86 counties are County Commissioner's, not legislative.

    Firing employees without a real cause (legal, illegal, just, whatever) is very expensive for an employer. Actually, it's the hiring and retraining of the replacement that is costly. Employers of any size do not to it casually and rarely at a whim.

    At least out West here counties can and do indeed pass laws (generally through city/county based councils). They, again generally, may not pass laws that conflict with state or federal law. But they can be in addition to exisitng state and federal law where they do not conflict. These are often called "ordinances" but function the same.

    Are you talking about an actual COUNTY that has a legislative government, or cities in the county only?
