Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

108 layoffs in Austin before 10/1?

Large Austin TV station reporting 108 layoffs for Oracle Austin office by Oct. 31. Anyone hear about this or know which departments will be affected?

This is clearly the microelectronics divestiture that happened a couple weeks ago. I was part of that 100+. This is just the WARN documentation being filed and finally getting picked up by news.

Unless I'm mistaken, aren't most or all of these 108 the people who were canned on 9/1 at the Riata site? My family member was among them, and that was everyone's last day on the job site. They're on O payroll until 10/31 (pay in lieu of notice, to use WARN terminology).

The gumshoes in Austin are now reporting on it because they've got wind of the WARN filing.

That's pretty much how it played out...

Oracle has obligations relative to the city of Austin, based on the deals that it has entered into.

Oracle has obligations relative to the city of Austin, based on the deals that it has entered into. So oracle had to inform city hall, which informed the media. As for oracle informing employees, well as you can tell it's not a priority. That's how a f:ed up company that doesn't care about its employees behaves. Take more all, you could be next.

Oracle Corp. subsidiary will cut 108 jobs by Oct. 31 while Novitex plans to eliminate 86 positions.

If you are still at Oracle regardless of your role, you need to be looking for your next career move before that is forced upon you.
