UK begins notifying employees of layoffs

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Some employees at the University of
Kentucky have begun receiving notice that they are being laid off.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports
university spokesman Jay Blanton wouldn't speculate on a final
number of employees who will lose their jobs. Blanton said Tuesday
that administrators are putting that information together.
University President Eli Capilouto announced last month that UK
would reduce spending to make up a $45 million budget deficit over
the next two years.
UK Work Life Office Director Robynn Pease said another round of
layoffs will probably occur between October and January.
Blanton said some departments have begun giving employees notice
that their jobs will end in 90 days.
