Innisbrook lays off 433 workers
May 21, 2020 - Innisbrook in Palm Harbor will permanently lay off 433 employees on June 30. The golf and spa resort said in a May 15 Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification that cutting costs and aligning the business with customer demand is imperative for the future of the company. Innisbrook was supposed to host the Valspar Championship in March, before the event was cancelled by the PGA Tour. Innisbrok previously furloughed 490 workers on March 23, in response to stringent public health measures enacted to slow the spread of Covid-19. "Since March 23, 2020, when the furlough was implemented, Innisbrook has experienced a significant decline in demand in the hospitality industry, which will result in a dramatic decrease in revenue and resulted in the need to take further action with regard to our workforce," the WARN said. The affected employees include office workers as well as those in restaurant, spa and golf operations.
