Jets Employees Being Told They Have to Take Two Weeks Unpaid Off

Times are tough for everyone, and that also goes for employees of the Jets. is reporting that the Jets today told employees on the business side of the team’s operations that they have to take two weeks of unpaid leave this offseason due to the weak economy.

Reports say that the team decided to do that instead of having a large number of job cuts. Owner Woody Johnson approved a plan that requires employees to take furloughs during a four-week period in late-June and early July,

Matt Higgins, the team’s executive vice president of business operations, told The Associated Press. The departments affected include marketing, media relations, finance and business operations.

“Like every other business in America, we’re facing challenges and trying to weather those challenges,” Higgins said. “We’re implementing a furlough plan that reflects the fact that our business is seasonal. We really wanted to do everything possible to preserve jobs and keep our team together.”
