Fall River, M.A. (WLNE) -Bristol Community College of Fall River announced they would begin the difficult task of laying off part-time employees on May 1 due to the unprecedented financial strain coronavirus has placed on the college.
Approximately 136 part-time employees will be effected by this decision.
Part-time employees are a vital part to the college and the decision did come easily.
A statement on the college’s website said, “We hope that we will be able to reinstate these positions, if possible, once the coronavirus pandemic subsides. The human resources team will be working with the employees who have already been notified as they transition to unemployment.”
