Sephora to lay off part-time, seasonal workers in US

Cosmetics chain Sephora said March 31 that it will lay off "a portion" of its part-time and seasonal workers at its U.S. locations.

In response to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, the LVMH Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton SE-owned retailer extended the temporary closure of its stores beyond its initial target date of April 3.

Jean-André Rougeot, president and CEO of Sephora Americas, said employees affected by the layoffs were those who have been at the company "for a short tenure and worked limited hours."

"They have all been offered severance and provided with resources to support their transition, including coordination with companies that provide essential services and may be hiring at this time," Rougeot added.

Sephora said its more than 9,000 workers in the U.S., which represent the vast majority of its employees in the country, will continue to be paid their wages and health benefits through late May or until stores open again, whichever comes first.

The retailer added that its e-commerce business remains operational.

For its Canadian locations, the company will retain all full-time and part-time workers, who will receive only 80% of their salaries but 100% of their health benefits until late May or until shops reopen.
