Health company office in Westbury to close, lay off 58
The Westbury office of a Pennsylvania pharmaceutical company, will close and lay off all of its 58 employees, according to a filing from the New York State Labor Department.
The WARN notice filed by Endo Health Solutions said most of the employees will be laid off Feb. 28 -- when the office is set to officially close -- although some will stay on to wind down operations. The reason for the layoff was "economic."
A spokesman for the company did not immediately return a call for comment.
All companies in New York with over 50 employees are required to notify the Labor Department 90 days before a mass layoff as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, or WARN.
