The effect of Amazon Layoffs has started happening in India as well. An e-mail has been sent to the fired employees from Amazon before being fired. The employees have been asked to contact the lead team on the due date for any further clarification regarding the job posting.
Amazon Layoffs Due to Economic Recession
Amazon CEO Andy Jassy has confirmed that there will be layoffs at the company. JC announced that more than 18000 employees would be affected by the layoffs. These include many employees of India. Previous reports indicated that Amazon may lay off around 1,000 employees working in technology, human resources and some other departments in India. However, now the apprehension of large number of employees being fired has proved to be correct. Amazon, which has started laying off employees globally including in India, will communicate with affected employees after January 18. This was confirmed by CEO Jesse in last week’s blog post.
Layoff in both freshers and experienced categories
As the layoffs began at Amazon, several affected employees shared on social media platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter that the company had laid them off. The employees said that they are looking for new opportunities and are ready for the job. According to sources close to India Today Tech, employees have been laid off across Amazon’s departments in India due to the layoffs. People working in Bengaluru, Gurugram and other offices have been fired. Loss-making teams have been hit the most. The fired employees include both freshers and experienced employees.
5 months salary offer
According to reports, Amazon has sent an email to the affected employees informing them that they have been removed. In the e-mail, the company promised 5 months’ severance pay to the employees. Explain that billionaire industrialist and Twitter owner Elon Musk is firing employees but not paying them. Musk showed the way out to the number of employees last year i.e. in 2022, most of the fired former Twitter employees are still waiting for an update on severance pay. According to reports, some employees have received severance mail from the company. However, the employees are not very happy with the pay structure.
The CEO of the company gave a statement in the blog
The news says that the layoffs at Amazon have just begun and are expected to last for a few more weeks. In last week’s blogpost, the Amazon CEO said that the firm hired more people during the coronavirus pandemic. Now thousands of employees will be laid off in the coming weeks. “This year’s reviews have been more difficult given the uncertain economy and we’ve hired people faster than we have over the past several years,” said Jesse in an official blogpost from the Amazon CEO.
