DoubleTree Employer LLC’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification letter to the N.C. Department of Commerce is dated July 22. In it, the company says that when it furloughed 40 employees at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Charlotte Gateway Village on West Trade Street in March, the temporary reduction in staffing was expected to last six months or less.
That’s no longer the case.
