Massive layoffs in Colorado now grow according to WARN data as more businesses advise of upcoming job cuts before the holidays.
“Colorado TV and satellite provider Dish Network is laying off over 500 staff despite reporting revenue of $3.7 billion earlier this week,” reports Ash Jurberg.
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.
Dish has filed a notice with the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment advising of the mass layoffs.
The company released the following statement:
“Like most businesses, we continually evaluate and make adjustments to ensure we’re set up for long-term success.
We made the difficult decision to part ways with some team members due to changing business demands on some teams.
Impacted employees will be notified by the end of the week,” said Meredith L. Diers, Dish Corporate Communications.
So far in 2023, Colorado has had approximately 27,144 employee layoffs across 91 businesses.
California remains the #1 state with the most layoffs in the country.
Below is a list of businesses that filed WARN notices of upcoming job cuts in Colorado prior to the holidays this year:
- Evraz. 600 job cuts by 12/22.
- SMX Cargo LLC. 84 job cuts by 12/17.
- Depuy Spine LP (Johnson & Johnson). 67 job cuts by 12/29.
- Cygnus Home Service, LLC. 51 job cuts by 12/15.
