Shreveport based Tango Transport will lay off 80 employees in Louisiana.
The company issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification and sent it to the Louisiana Workforce Commission.
The freight-hauling company has operations in Shreveport and Sibley, as well as in West Memphis, Arkansas, and Madisonville, Kentucky.
The layoffs were to begin on Sept. 30 and are expected to be completed by Oct. 14.
Companies are required to file WARN notices under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act if there is a full plant closure resulting in 50 of more employees losing their jobs in any 30-day period or if there is a mass layoff during any 30-day period.
A layoff is considered a mass layoff if it is more than 500 employees or if is between 50 and 499 employees and comprises 33 percent or more of the active workforce at that particular site.
