CA Technologies, a global business software company, issued a federal WARN notice recently that as many as 54 employees at its Ewing Township office could lose their jobs in January.

The company was acquired by Broadcom Inc. in a deal finalized earlier this month.

A spokesperson for Broadcom said in a statement:

“Employees are critical to our success, and any decisions about how to best integrate our workforces are considered very carefully. As with any acquisition, we seek to align skills and resources to most effectively pursue today’s market opportunities. This inevitably requires reductions in select areas of the company. These are difficult but necessary decisions, and we work with impacted employees to help ensure they have appropriate services and support.”

The spokesperson could not comment further. It was not clear if the entire facility was slated for closure or how many total employees are located there.

The affected employees would lose their jobs effective Jan. 7, according to the notice, but are eligible to apply for open jobs across the company. Those laid off would be eligible for severance and other benefits, the notice said.

WARN notices normally cover mass layoffs or facility closings as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1989.
