Progressive is planning to lay off 76 of its employees from its headquarters in Mayfield by the end of the year after permanently eliminating its Commercial Auto Insurance Procedure (CAIP) group.

The insurance company filed a notice announcing the decision with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services on Monday. 

The CAIP employees had performed services for a third-party, but the contract was not renewed. The nonrenewal of the contract was announced to the CAIP group in January 2020.

The good news is that Progressive has worked to put affected employees in touch with the entity that will be providing these services following the expiration the contracts. "The vast majority of affected employees have secured job offers with this entity," according to the filing. 

Progressive is one of the largest employers in Northeast Ohio, with more than 43,000 workers. It was ranked No. 6 in Forbes' list of the top employers in Ohio for 2021.
