Burns is laying off around 250 workers at its Hoffman Estates home office yet there are “no present intends to close the whole office,” the retailer said in notice recorded with the state.
The retailer, which rose up out of insolvency in February, sent a letter to the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity that said it is executing a lasting workforce decrease over a 14-day time span, starting Oct. 28.
“Influenced representatives will be set on a paid authoritative leave taking effect right now for the time before the business end date,” the organization said in the Aug. 29 letter.
Burns representative Larry Costello said influenced workers were placed on paid leave last week and “there is no extra activity gotten ready for October.”
The fired representatives are not spoken to by an association, the organization said in the Aug. 29 letter to the state.
