Muscogee (Creek) Nation Lays Off Hundreds Of Health Employees


OKMULGEE, Oklahoma - The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health initiated mass layoffs Friday at several of the tribe's health facilities, blaming a deficit in the health department's budget.

Sources said hundreds of people received termination letters signed by MCN Principal Chief James Floyd on September 30, 2016, and that the employees were escorted off tribal property by tribal police immediately after they were given the letters and allowed to collect their personal items.

Tribal officials confirmed that 123 employees were laid off and that 55 others were transferred and placed within the tribe and department of health.
