LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – About 200 workers will lose their jobs in the closing of a Louisville call center, according to the company’s closing notice filed with state government.
Vantiv’s letter, sent Thursday, says :approximately 200 full time employees" will be laid off no later than March 31 of next year.
The business, at 5100 Interchange Way in Commerce Crossings, is southwest of the Preston Highway and I-265/Gene Snyder Freeway interchange.
The letter says the company will close its facility between January 30 and March 31.
The employees work "in positions relating to the staffing and support of its call center operations, including some professional positions that provide support to other areas of Vantiv’s business," the letter said.
Vantiv is based in suburban Cincinnati and provides in-store and online credit card processing systems for businesses, according to its website.
Company officials had not returned messages from WDRB News early Friday afternoon.
Large employers send state employment officials notification letters about 60 days from closing as required under federal law. They are nicknamed WARN notices, for the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.
We contacted Vantiv for comment on this story and received the following response via email from Andrew Ciafardini:
In alignment with our long-term customer service strategy, we will be closing our Louisville facility in the Spring of 2017. Vantiv is committed to remaining transparent through this process and helping our affected employees with their career transition.
