PADUCAH, KY (AP) -

The roughly 300 remaining employees at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant are expected to be laid off this week, but official say they may be rehired quickly by the deactivation contractor.

Centrus Energy Corp. Vice President Steve Penrod says the potential rehiring of the employees by Fluor Federal Services is part of the process of turning the plant back over to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Fluor spokesman Jack Williams told The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/1wffQX2 ) the company has hired about 375 people and sent out more than 400 offers.

Williams says that 73 percent of those currently being hired are former employees of United States Enrichment Corp., the former name of Centrus Energy.

In its last report to Congress, the DOE indicated deactivation and decommissioning would be completed by 2040.
