Byju's Layoffs: Edtech company Byju’s has begun its latest round of layoffs. The controversial company had recently delayed the salaries of March 2024, citing financial troubles. Reports say that Byju’s has been rather ruthless in this round of job cuts, with no notice issued to employees. The company is laying off people via phone calls, followed by an email. It is not indulging in face-to-face interaction.

The company has been facing several operational and legal issues over the years and has had multiple rounds of layoffs, letting go of over 10,000 employees in the past two years. This particular round will impact 100-500 employees, and especially in the sales division.

Your full and final settlement will be done as per the exit policy.
