Mass Layoff Statistics

Mass Layoffs Data Discontinued - read more here

Mass Layoff Statistics (MLS) program is a Federal-State initiative that identifies, describes and tracks large job cutbacks. We report mass layoffs and closures in Illinois in which at least 50 workers were separated involuntarily by their employer for more than 30 days. We also report all potential mass layoff events that were identified, regardless of their duration.

If you have any questions or problems please contact the MLS program specialist or call (312) 793-5896.
