Beaumont Health is heard to lay off 2475 employees and end another 450 positions permanently. Temporarily laid off employees can enhance unemployment benefits through the state, and some of them can expect to return once the COVID-19 spread reduces.
CEO John Fox of Beaumont Health says, “I am extremely proud of our team’s rapid response to COVID-19. While many front-line employees have never been busier, other parts of our operations have drastically declined or ceased. We must make difficult, quick decisions now to protect and readjust to an uncertain future”.
Employees who have been removed altogether can receive a lump-sum severance package.
