DuPont notifies employees of job cuts in January

In addition to a $700 million cost-reduction initiative and associated restructuring that DuPont announced on Dec. 11, the company advised its employees on Dec. 29 that job reductions will begin in January, according to multiple media outlets. The job cuts will involve 1,700 jobs in DuPont’s home state of Delaware and thousands more globally as DuPont prepares for its merger with Dow Chemical.

DuPont has approximately 54,000 employees worldwide, and its restructuring program is expected to affect about 10% of that workforce.

Once the merger is completed, the combined company, called DowDuPont, will split into three separate entities that will focus on material science, agriculture, and specialty products.
