Upcoming Layoffs in Washington Now Grow Prior to The Holidays

Upcoming layoffs in Washington now grow prior to the holidays as new businesses file WARN acts advising of job cuts.

It’s important to note that under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site.

VMware is the latest business to file a notice with the Washington Employment Security Department.

The company advised on Monday that 158 staff at its office in Bellevue will be laid off on January 26.

Employees learned yesterday that their positions would be eliminated due to the company being acquired by Broadcom.

Broadcom closed its $69 billion acquisition of VMware on November 22.

The company released the following statement:

“Broadcom recently completed its acquisition of VMware.

As part of integration planning and following an organizational needs assessment, we identified go-forward roles that will be required within the combined company.

We regret to inform you that your position is being eliminated, and your employment will be terminated.

We would like to thank you for your dedication and service. [Furthermore] We want to make this transition as smooth as possible, including offering you a generous severance package and providing you a non-working paid notice period.”
