Weiser Security Services plans to cut 72 jobs

Weiser Security Services said it could lay off 72 workers at its Miami Lakes location if it loses its contract with Miami-Dade County.


New Orleans-based Weiser, which provides contract security guard services in 13 states, filed a Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act notice with the state of Florida on Monday. It cited the rebidding of its contract with the Miami-Dade Internal Services Department, formerly the General Services Administration, as the reason for the layoffs.
“While it is our intention to bid on the job, there is no guarantee that we will be awarded the contract,” Human Resources VP Charlene Lee-Sutherlin said in the WARN notice. “If GSA chooses another guard company, Weiser Security will experience approximately a 28 percent reduction of full-time employees in its Miami office, as all employees working on the current GSA account will be laid off.”
