Intuit Layoffs To Hit Southern California
Layoffs at personal finance software maker Intuit are set to hit a number of the firm's Southern California locations. Mountain View-based Intuit, which said in June that it would be laying off about 4 percent of its staff, disclosed through California WARN notices recently that it is laying off employees in Calabasas, Woodland Hills, San Diego, and Westlake Village as part of an overall, company-wide reduction. According to the notices, 29 of the employees are in San Diego, 14 in Woodland Hills, 9 in Westlake Village, and 1 in Calabasas. The firm had earlier said that the cuts came in its Small Business Division, but had not detailed the location of the cuts. The layoffs date are split between August 3rd and August 17th, according to the WARN filings. WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) is a California law which requires certain companies to report when they are planning mass layoffs at least 60 days in advance.
