Dodgers Cutting Employee Pay, But No Layoffs

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Full-time employees of the Los Angeles Dodgers will not be furloughed or laid off due to the coronavirus pandemic, but those making over $75,000 per year will face a system of tiered salary cuts beginning on June 1, the team confirmed to City News Service today.

The Dodgers informed hundreds of employees of the cuts via a Zoom conference call Tuesday afternoon.

Employees making $75,000 or more annually will have their pay reduced by up to 35%, with a larger percentage cut for those with higher salaries.

Most of Major League Baseball's 30 teams -- including the Dodgers -- had already pledged to pay their full-time employees through the end of May.
