EUGENE, Ore. -- A former employee filed a class action lawsuit against Monaco Coach Corporation Thursday claiming the company did not give employees the legally required notice that the company was shutting down.

Monaco notified 2,000 employees Monday that they had been terminated from their jobs. Most of the employees had been on furlough since late last year. The company filed for bankruptcy on Thursday.

In the lawsuit, Ronald C. Folk seeks payment for those 60 days. The suit is filed as a class action, seeking to extend the complaint to other Monaco Coach employees.
