The layoff toll

Posted By on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 at 6:20 PM

Fidelity National Information Services confirms to Arkansas Business that it has laid off 55 people in Little Rock. As has become customary with big layoffs in the Arkansas business community, many more details are hard to come by.

An employee who wrote me about the layoff said there's wide suspicion that some of the work being done in Little Rock is being migrated off-shore, to India, but I can't confirm that suspicion.
