Restaurants at Detroit Metro Airport could see layoffs in August

In 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.

These 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.”
