LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Hakkasan Group joins a growing list of companies to announce layoffs and furloughs amid a statewide shutdown of nonessential businesses due to the coronavirus pandemic.


The company did not specify how many people were impacted.

In a statement to 13 Action News, the company said:

The long-term impact of the COVID-19 virus on the travel, tourism, entertainment and hospitality industry remains unclear. Given these circumstances, we have taken decisive actions to preserve the long-term stability of our business that include conducting layoffs and furloughs due to the temporary suspension of our venue operations in the US and in many of our international locations. We are doing all that we can to protect our team members where possible, all while remaining focused on getting our operations running again soon.
