Massive layoffs now hit New York prior to the holidays as more businesses announce upcoming job cuts.
New York now ranks #2 with the most layoffs in the U.S according to the latest WARN data.
California remains the #1 state with the most layoffs in the country.
So far in 2023, New York has had approximately 36,057 layoffs across 338 businesses.
The following companies have announced of upcoming job cuts in New York before the year ends:
- Shop-Rite Supermarkets Inc. 567 job cuts by 12/09.

It is 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 notices follow a rise in layoffs in New York in October,” reports Ash Jurberg.
“Last month, twenty-three businesses announced layoffs, a significant rise from September, which saw just ten businesses cut jobs in New York.”
The biggest layoffs in New York came from Yellow Corporation in late July where more than 1,185 positions were lost.
Google had also laid off over 887 employees during the second quarter of the year.
Banks such as Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley laid off more than 1,000 employees combined in New York alone this year.
There are currently no advisories of layoffs for the month of November.
