- Barnes & Noble has disclosed plans for a potential layoff strategy as the retailer prepares for pandemic-related store closures. Staff at affected locations will first be able to use their time off, with employees who have been with the company for at least a year eligible for “up to” two weeks of pay. Employees with less than six months of time will be temporarily laid off upon the closing of the store. CEO Daunt stated that he would rehire workers after the stores are permitted to reopen to preserve their jobs — though he did not specify a timeline for the reopenings (Retail TouchPoints).
