Layoffs Watch '16: Goldman Sachs

The House of Lloyd is making cuts.

The bank will be giving the heave-ho to more than twice as many as it originally expected, and while that number is still pretty small in the grand scheme of things, this is Goldman Sachs we're talking about, where every special employee counts for like, at least 10 people at BofA.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. told New York state regulators it’s expanding a plan to cut employees this year, potentially dismissing 109 workers. The firm amended a February “warn notice” filed with the Department of Labor, increasing the number of affected employees from 43. The revised filing, posted on Thursday, also extended the time frame for dismissals, saying they’ll occur between May 9 and Dec. 31. The bank previously said they will be concluded by July 1. Neither filing indicates what kind of personnel will be cut. Both list the reason for the move as “economic.”
