GrImmway Farms says the layoff notices sent to county administrators does not mean they are laying off 387 employees. The company says they are reorganizing some of their Kern County facilities and workers at plants south of Bakersfield, in Arvin and Edison will be required to move to other shifts or locations. The WARN notices are required by law if there are to be large-scale layoffs and Grimmway says the moves are technically layoffs, prompting the notices.
