Layoffs Hit Home Health Care Provider In Tampa And Surrounding Area — Nearly 700 Lose Jobs | Business Observer | Business Observer

Bayada Home Health Care is laying off nearly 700 employees as it closes five facilities in the region.

The largest number of employees let go work in Brooksville, where 306 employees will lose their jobs — 150 will be laid off in Brandon, 144 in New Port Richey, 79 in Clearwater and three in Tampa.

The job cuts were announced Monday, Jan. 24, and will become official April 1, according to a letter to the state. The letter, which was sent to meet federally mandated Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification (WARN) Act requirements, states that layoffs are due to a decision to close “our Assistive Care State Program Offices in the state of Florida.”

Bayada, according to its website, has 26,000 employees in 22 states and has 350 offices. The company lists 14 offices in Florida on the site, including those slated to shut down.

The layoffs were posted on Florida’s WARN database late Monday evening and there was no immediate information on whether the layoffs and closings were restricted to Florida.
