On Sunday, The Wall Street Journal reported that McDonald’s is temporarily closing its U.S. offices this week and is poised to inform corporate employees about upcoming layoffs as part of restructuring.
Last week, McDonald’s sent an internal email to its U.S. employees and some international staff, requesting that they work from home from Monday to Wednesday. This will allow the company to deliver staffing decisions virtually. However, the number of employees affected by the layoffs was not disclosed in the report.
The message viewed by The Wall Street Journal stated that “During the week of April 3, we will communicate key decisions related to roles and staffing levels across the organization.”
McDonald’s also requested its employees to cancel all in-person meetings with vendors and other external parties at its headquarters.
Reuters reached out to McDonald’s for a comment, but the company has not responded yet. In January, McDonald’s had announced that it would review its corporate staffing levels as part of its updated business strategy, which could lead to layoffs in some areas and expansion in others.
The company is expected to make important announcements regarding the layoffs by Monday.
