Mass Layoffs Announced By Logistics Company in Philly; Will Close Operations in January
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: The greater Philadelphia region’s Eagle Sight Delivery, a delivery and logistics company, has announced closure.
The company notified the state officials of its closure and the impending layoff of 55 employees by filing a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) notification with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor of Industry.
The company said it is closing the operations because of “challenging financial conditions.” It is anticipated that the closure will take place on January 30.
To locate acceptable employment for the impacted employees, the company indicated that it will be getting in touch with other delivery service providers in the warehouse from where it operates. The company issued the WARN notice on November 29.
Federal law known as the WARN Act requires companies to give notice 60 days in advance of a covered business closing or mass layoff to protect workers, their families, and the communities in which they operate.
