Brasada Ranch announces furloughs and layoffs
Brasada Ranch conducted a mass furlough on a rolling basis from March 23-31, according to a Worker Adjustment Notification Act announcement dated this past Sunday.
The furlough will result in 29 full-time employees and 67 part-time employees being placed on an unpaid leave of absence. Employees placed on a leave of absence will continue to receive health insurance and other benefits. All affected employees were notified.
This decision was made as a result of "the unforeseeable dramatic number of reservation cancellations and other decreases in our business caused by concerns related to the natural disaster that is the coronavirus, as well as the CDC's recommendation to limit public gatherings to no more than 10 people," wrote Duncan Hogarth, the resort's managing director. "While we are hopeful these leaves of absence will not be long-lasting, we are nevertheless providing you this notice out of an abundance of caution to ensure compliance
with the law."
Hogarth said that the duration of the mass furlough is unknown at this point, "but we are hopeful it will be short in duration."
