The Berkshire economy absorbed another shock Thursday when one of South County's largest employers announced that it will lay off 90 percent of its almost 500 employees next month.
Due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health is planning to lay off 450 of the retreat center's 489 total employees June 17, CEO Barbara Vacarr said Thursday. Kripalu's employees were notified Wednesday of the staff reductions.The remaining 39 employees will receive salary cuts based on the amount of their yearly compensation, with the highest-paid staffers receiving the biggest pay reductions, Vacarr said. The remaining members of Kripalu's peer leadership team are receiving 40 percent pay cuts.
"We tried to do this equitably, based on salary," she said.
All of the laid-off employees will be eligible to apply for unemployment compensation, Vacarr said. Kripalu hopes to bring back as many employees as possible when it reopens in 2021, she said.
