Eastern Kentucky call center laying off 157

Posted: Updated:

HAZARD, Ky. (AP) -- More than 150 workers are being laid off from a Perry County call center.

Sykes Enterprises has told state officials it will lay off 157 people from the company's operations in Chavies.

Company spokeswoman Andrea Burnett Thomas says increases and decreases in employment are not uncommon in the industry and it is usually the result of adapting to factors including client needs or market conditions, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Thomas would not say whether the employees have already been laid off.
