Forest Labs plans 84 layoffs in Commack plant

The pharmaceutical maker Forest Laboratories Inc. has posted a notice with the U.S. Department of Labor saying it plans to lay off 84 employees at a packaging plant in Commack.

In the Dec. 1 notice, Forest Laboratories said the layoffs would take place among the workforce at its 500 Commack Rd. building.

The Labor Department's online site says the company filed the layoff notice because of a "plant unit closing." And the reason for the layoffs was "economic," the company stated.

The company did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday.
