Identification services company Valid USA is transferring operations out of its South Plainfield facility, which could cost 76 employees their jobs or force them to move out of state, according to an WARN notice filed with the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
Valid USA said in the notice that it transferring the bulk of operations at the facility on Montrose Avenue to its other locations around the country around March 31, leaving 14 employees at the repurposed facility.
A Valid USA spokesman declined to comment to NJBIZ.
The notice said the company was shifting operations to “improve operational efficiency, economic reality and reduce operating costs.”
“Employees will be provided an opportunity to interview for positions in other states,” the notice said. “Skills, abilities and past wages will be taken into consideration. If offered a position outside of the state, a 10k relocation allowance will be offered.”
Employees would also potentially receive base pay, retention pay, time off compensation and severance, the company added.
WARN notices normally cover mass layoffs or facility closings as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1989.
