Unemployment and LayoffsJob Layoffs

A convenience-store supplier warned Maryland regulators that it will lay off 112 employees in Baltimore, the state said Friday.

Eby-Brown's reduction plan was one of two recent layoff warnings the state received. MV Transportation, which provides paratransit and other transportation services to governments, groups and companies, told the state that it would close its Waldorf division beginning late October and lay off the 68 people working at the Southern Maryland location.

Eby-Brown's layoffs will start Nov. 2, the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said.

Neither employer could immediately be reached for comment.
