Microsoft Confirms Layoffs Affecting Hundreds of Corporate Jobs
Microsoft has announced a new round of layoffs, affecting several hundred workers in and around its Redmond headquarters. A Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) entry from Washington State confirms that 276 workers will be leaving their jobs at Microsoft.
Of the affected workers, 210 are office-based employees, and 66 are remote workers. The layoffs come just weeks after Microsoft’s previous fiscal year ended, leading some to believe that this is a restructuring move rather than the beginning of another wave of layoffs in the tech industry.
