RCP Mag | at | by Mike

Microsoft's ongoing layoffs are hitting its home turf, with new notices affecting 1,248 people in the Redmond, Bellevue and Issaquah, Wash. areas in May.

Microsoft's May job cuts will affect 689 people in that area, starting on May 5, plus 559 people located in Redmond and Bellevue, which will occur on May 26, according to a Fox 13 report. The layoff statistics come from the state's Employment Security Department, which issues "a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification alert when companies with 100 or more employees have layoffs or closures," the report noted.
