Assurant To Eliminate 120 Jobs In Springfield And Dayton
One of the largest employers in Clark County is eliminating 120 jobs from its workforce. Assurant is cutting 87 jobs from its Springfield location and 33 jobs from its Dayton office.
New York-based Assurant, an insurance company formerly known as Fortis, employs more than 2,000 people in Springfield and Dayton. The company has already eliminated more than 100 jobs in the past nine months.
Company officials state that Assurant has been experiencing lower volumes of work in some areas - and staffing needs have changed locally. Employees in Springfield and Dayton were notified this week about the layoffs.
Laid off workers will remain on the payroll through April 15, and receive severance pay.
