United is prohibited from any involuntary layoffs until Oct. 1 because of the funding it receives from the Payroll Support Program under the CARES Act.
The airline says it has taken numerous measures to cut spending and avoid layoffs, such as cutting executive pay and establishing hiring freezes.
Notices will be sent to all potentially affected employees this week, according to United.
Layoffs for frontline employees will be based on seniority and based on performance for management and administrative employees ■
