The New Era Cap Company announces temporary layoffs

The New Era Cap Company notified employees recently that half of the workers at the Derby plant will be laid off for a short period of time.

A spokesperson for New Era tells 2 On Your Side that "it's not uncommon this time of year that we experience temporary lay-offs due to a reduced volume prior to Major League Baseball season beginning."

The employees are expected to return to work shortly after the New Year.
