The layoffs continue in Texas as three more businesses file WARN notices with the Texas Workforce Commission advising of job cuts ahead of the holidays.

Under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site.

This week, three more businesses filed a WARN notice.

  • Bandler Texas has laid off nine staff in Dallas
  • Cognizant Technology Solutions is layoff 65 staff in Austin on December 8.
  • Covenant Aviation Security is laying off 103 staff at George Bush Airport in Houston on December 6.

Texas Job Cuts

Several businesses have filed a WARN act with the Texas Workforce Commission this month.

  • Raytheon Technologies, a multinational aerospace and defense conglomerate, is laying off 34 staff in Dallas.
  • ADT Solar advised of layoffs across Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston
  • CVS Health is laying off employees in Irving and Richardson.
  • Hylilion is laying off 150 staff in Cedar Park
  • 10 Roads Express is laying off 66 staff in Fort Worth.
  • Whole Foods closed a store in midtown Houston and advised 110 staff were laid off.
  • Walmart is closing its fulfillment center in Fort Worth, resulting in 363 staff being terminated.

So far, in 2023, there have been 216 WARN notices lodged with the Texas Workforce Commission, resulting in over 8,000 job cuts. In 2022, there were just 86 notices filed.
