Fluor Hanford Layoffs Less than Expected

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Fluor Hanford has announced that layoffs will not be as large as previously expected.

The Hanford contractor says 53 people will be laid off due to decreasing workloads.

34 of these employees will leave voluntarily, while the other 19 are being let go.

In August, the company said they would be laying off up to 100 workers, but a reorganization allowed them to cut those numbers.
