Apple Computer Inc. Friday confirmed the company would layoff a small number workers. Apple representatives declined to detail the number of employees affected by the layoffs or whether all of the affected employees were located in the company’s Cupertino headquarters.
“Apple has had some minor staff reductions in the normal course of business, but our overall headcount continues to grow,” an Apple representative told MacCentral this afternoon.
These layoffs come just over a month after Apple experienced staff reductions at its Laguna facility in Elk Grove. The staff reduction in that facility affected less than seven percent of the company’s employees.
