The layoffs indicate that they are work permits and that they will be able to return to work on January 1.

According to the statement, it is argued that the layoffs are the result of Aramark experiencing an unprecedented disruption in its business due to the sudden difficulty caused by the Coronavirus pandemic that hit the world earlier this year.

“Drew University has just informed us that it intends to continue conducting its fall semester remotely and online, and does not intend to resume classes in person until the spring semester 2021,” says Aramark’s statement. under the Workforce Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

“Due to the reduction in in-person and resident instruction on campus, we had no choice but to change staffing levels at these locations.”

“Hopefully these decisions are temporary and we hope to return to normal operations when life on campus returns to full capacity,” the official said.

It should be remembered that Aramark provides food services to other nearby universities, which like those already mentioned have adopted a mostly online course program for the fall of 2020, such as Temple, Drexel and La Salle Universities.
