EARTH CITY, Mo. (AP) – As the St. Louis Rams organization packs up its headquarters in preparation for moving the National Football League team to Los Angeles, about 50 employees are preparing to be left behind.
Since the NFL voted to relocate the Rams to Los Angeles three weeks ago, about half of the 100 employees who aren’t players, coaches or in the scouting and personnel department have been invited to follow the team to California.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the other half is being offered two months’ termination pay, six months’ severance pay and one week of additional pay for each year of employment with the team.
The team is also providing a placement service for these employees, offering resume and interview tips, as well as networking opportunities.
