Toys R Us filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy last fall, but their recent announcement of liquidation of their stores could put employees at risk.
When a large corporation files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, the effects are felt by many. The Toys R Us liquidation is no expectation here in New Jersey. Attorney John Scura speaks with News 12 about what this means for employees as well as for customers who hold gift cards.
Scura, Wigfield, Heyer, Stevens & Cammarota, LLC encourages employees to check how their pensions are set up and make sure they are covered.

A possible liquidation of all Toys R Us stores in the United States could put 30,000 people out of work.
The Wayne-based toy retail giant apparently broke the news to its employees Wednesday, according to a toy industry analyst. The chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last fall.
Bankruptcy attorney John Scura says pensions for large corporations like Toys R Us are typically set up in separate, protected funds but this is the first thing employees should check.
"There could be a shortfall on certain payments that are made to it,” Scura says.
