130 employees handed termination notices at Fort Erie Race Track
130 employees at Fort Erie Race Track received termination notices on Tuesday.
The notices are effective October 15th, but there is a positive according to Fort Erie Live Racing Consortium CEO Jim Thibert.
Thibert says the same termination notices were handed out at the end of last racing season, and most of the employees were back this year after the province and OLG worked out an agreement.
Employment law stipulates employees must be provided an eight-week notice of termination.
Thibert says Fort Erie is having a good season, and still has 18 race days left on the 2013 calendar.
