The Los Angeles Dodgers will implement a system of tiered salary cuts instead of imposing furloughs or layoffs on full-time employees due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The salary cuts -- which will range from 0 to 35% or more for top executives and will start June 1 -- will affect only full-time employees making more than $75,000 a year, according to sources.

In a statement, the Dodgers said higher-paid employees will take a larger share of the reductions.

"This plan allows us to avoid organization-wide furloughs and to preserve hundreds of jobs," the statement said.
