SAN DIEGO - Some big changes could be in store for popular burger restaurant chain Slater's 50/50.

Layoff notices were filed with the state of California for more than 250 workers at the Liberty Station and San Marcos locations, but Slater's owner and founder Scott Slater confirmed to 10News that no jobs will be lost.

Slater said the layoff notices were a technicality and all part of the legal process for selling his six restaurants.

Slater told the Orange County Register that he would be stepping down as president of the chain but would still have a financial stake in the company.

The other four Slater's 50/50 locations are in Anaheim Hills, Huntington Beach, Pasadena and Rancho Cucamonga.
