An annual report of mass layoffs and resulting separations.
Mass Layoffs Data Discontinued
On March 1, 2013, President Obama ordered into effect the across-the-board spending
cuts (commonly referred to as sequestration) required by the Balanced Budget and
Emergency Deficit Control Act, as amended. Under the order, the Bureau of Labor
Statistics (BLS) must cut its current budget by more than $30 million, 5 percent of
the current 2013 appropriation, by September 30, 2013. In order to help achieve
these savings and protect core programs, the BLS will eliminate two programs,
including Mass Layoff Statistics, and all "measuring green jobs" products. The final
release of Mass Layoffs Statistics data will occur on June 21st, with publication of
the May 2013 data.
