Another Wave of Unexpected Layoffs Now Hits Washington

Another wave of unexpected layoffs now hits Washington as more businesses file WARN notices advising of upcoming job cuts.

It’s important to note that under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site.

These must be filed with the Washington Employment Security Department and four notices have recently been lodged.

As February comes to an end very soon, the list below shows upcoming layoffs in Washington between March and April:

  • Lost Boys Interactive, LLC. 7 job cuts by 3/15.
  • WestRock. 87 job cuts by 3/18.
  • Northwest Motorsport, LLC. 142 job cuts by 3/24.
  • Block. 43 job cuts by 3/30.
  • Thermoforming Systems, LLC. 66 job cuts by 3/31.
  • Penske Logistics. 125 job cuts by 3/31.
  • Sonoco Products Co. 34 job cuts by 3/01.
  • RaterLabs. 3,657 job cuts by 4/06.
  • Skagit Horticulture, LLC. 169 job cuts by 4/07.
  • Appen AI, Inc. 2 job cuts by 4/08.
  • Roy Farms, SPC. 29 job cuts by 4/15.

So far for 2024, there has been 5,021 layoffs in Washington across 16 businesses according to the latest WARN data.

A famous restaurant chain now closes 4 locations in Florida in an abrupt fashion, with confirmations being made on social media.

Tijuana Flats shuttered several Jacksonville, Florida, locations, with some customers being notified by a sign left on the front door, reports The-Sun.

The national fast-casual restaurant is known for its made-to-order Tex-Mex classics like burritos, tacos, nachos, and a hot sauce bar.

These closed locations were in Lakewood, Mandarin, Bartram Park, and Ortega Village, according to the site Jacksonville.com.

The chain, known for its tag line “Tex-Mex for all,” had been long established in the Jacksonville area as the now-closed restaurants had been in place for years.

Its Lakewood location announced the news with a homemade sign that was taped to the front door on Sunday, February 18.

“This location is closed,” the note said.

“Please visit our Riverside location at 2025 Riverside Ave. or our Baymeadows location at 9942 Old Baymeadows Rd.”

All four of these locations have now been removed from the restaurant’s website and are listed as “permanently closed” on Facebook.

Tijuana Flats has more than 110 restaurants across the South but most of its locations are in Florida, according to the monitor site, ScrapeHero.

The chain still has seven remaining restaurants in the Jacksonville area, according to its website.

Despite these closures, Tijuana Flats is set to open a new location in Palm Coast, around 60 miles south of Jacksonville, on February 26, according to the Observer Local News.

The chain’s vice president of marketing, Curtis Cattanach, said the company was looking to stay prominent in this part of Florida.

“Tijuana Flats has been diligent in its efforts to increase the number of locations on the east coast, and this is a strong example of that,” Cattanach said.
