News : Boise Call Center Maximus to Eliminate 1,600 Jobs
Boise, Idaho, Feb 24, 2014 -- Maximus in Boise said that it plans to eliminate 1,600 workers in the Treasure Valley.
The call center has been housing phone calls related to the Affordable Care Act.
"The reduction in staffing is based on the nature of the contract and the reduced volume of calls, both of which are directly related to the enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act," a letter to employees states.
The company says it plans to eliminate the positions April 25.
"Given the number of employees who must be let go, it is reasonable to expect your position ... to be eliminated," the letter states.
Several resturants and businesses just blocks away from the call center are worried what impact it could have on business.
