Restaurants at Detroit Metro Airport could see layoffs in August
compliance with the Federal WARN Act (Public Law 100-379), HMS Host
Corp. notified Michigan's Workforce Development Agency that on or
about Aug. 15, the company will order layoffs at its Detroit
operations located at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
layoffs will occur as a result of a loss of contract and no new
contracts have been awarded to HMS Host at Detroit Metropolitan
Airport,” the company said in a letter received Thursday. “This
will result in a permanent closure of the Chili's Too, Jose Cuervo
Tequileria, Home Team Sports and the Starbucks Fountain. This is
expected to cause loss of employment for approximately 135 employees
unless the new contract holder decides to offer the displaced
associates new positions.”
