Mayfield Consumer Products to lay off 501 employees
MAYFIELD, Ky. (KFVS) - Mayfield Consumer Products will lay off 501 employees.
They said they expect all layoffs in Mayfield to be permanent.
The plant, a candle factory, was located on Industrial Drive in Mayfield. Eight people died when it collapsed during a tornado on December 10.
Multiple employees of the Mayfield Consumer Products candle factory filed a lawsuit against the company.
While many employees are being offered a transfer to a Hickory Point facility, according to the letter, there is not enough room for the entire operation to move, and not all employees will be able to transition to that plant.
