Earlier this week, Zenith Education Group announced that it would be closing operations and carrying out employee separations in Southfield, Michigan. The nonprofit career education provider offers affordable programs to help students gain skills that are currently in high demand. The company also confirmed that it would be laying off employees in Columbus, Ohio.
According to the company’s WARN notification, it will soon be reducing its workforce at its Columbus, Ohio facility. The impacted employees are based out of the 825 Tech Center Drive facility. The company confirmed that the campus location will close at the end of the teach-out process.
The associated job losses are expected to be permanent. Zenith believes that the job losses, which are a result of downsizing, will begin on January 8, 2018. They’ll be completed at the conclusion of the teach-out plan. None of the impacted employees are represented by a union and therefore do not have bumping rights.
In total, Zenith anticipates that 31 workers will be impacted by the layoffs. The full WARN notice can be found here.
