Memphis Grizzlies Laid Off 7 Employees Due to NBA Lockout

by September 22, 2011

Seven more folks became victims of the NBA lockout, but some of the jobs may be available again once the lockout ends. From the Commercial Appeal: “The Grizzlies just experienced their first employment casualties due to the NBA lockout. Seven people were laid off by the franchise although some workers will have an opportunity to return to work whenever the league’s labor dispute is resolved. Video coordinator Trish McGhee, assistant equipment manager Vince Ford and scouting coordinator Wendy Smith were among the workers relieved of their duties. The Griz also released a receptionist, mail clerk and members of the claim services staff.”
