McDonald's to Announce Layoffs; Shutters US Offices Temporarily

QSR chain McDonald's Corp is temporarily closing its US offices this week as it prepares to inform its corporate employees about layoffs as part of a broader company restructuring, share a WSJ report on Sunday.

In an internal email last week to the employees and some international staff, McDonald's asked them to work from home from Monday through Wednesday so it can deliver staffing decisions virtually.

However, it is unclear how many employees will be laid off.

"During the week of April 3, we will communicate key decisions related to roles and staffing levels across the organization," read the message sent by the burger chain.

McDonald's has also asked its employees to cancel all in-person meetings with vendors and other outside parties at its headquarters, shared the report.

Earlier in January it had announced that it would review corporate staffing levels as part of an updated business strategy, which could lead to layoffs in some areas and expansion in others.

The layoffs are expected to be announced by Wednesday.
