Buyout offer turned down

A sign that the company did not accept all Dallas Morning News employees who sought buyouts is in. A sports web producer received a note from human resources with news that the company had declined the offer.

The web producer was not informed of a specific reason why, but apparently had put in the request shortly before the end of the opt-in period.

The generic explanations that managers have previously stated were included in the note. Rejections would happen if a department was oversubscribed, a request arrived later than others, or the company’s operational needs required it keep an employee.

What this means for the Dallas Morning News is unclear. Maybe we will know soon.
