With some states experiencing another rapid increase in COVID-19 cases, American Airlines notify their frontline workers of possible layoffs. According to The Worker Adjusting and Notification Act, the employers are required to notify employees of possible lay offs at least 60 days before.
The potential layoffs are expected to be 2,500 pilots, 10,000 flight attendants, and 3,200 mechanics. A spokesperson for the company says, this is affiliated with the overstaffing it expects to have in the fall when the government assistance the airline has been receiving expires. Chie Executive Doug Parker and President Isom say they hope to reduce the potential layoffs through increased leave or early departure programs they have since instilled.
