Over 80 employees at CNNPH will lose their jobs as of Feb. 10

As of February 10, 88 employees at CNN Philippines will lose their jobs, a thing the network has labeled “rightsizing.”

Employees who received the notice were told that their positions were found redundant after the company assessed its operational requirements.

The letter, dated January 11, was signed by Nine Media Corporation president Armie Jarin Bennett, reports Rappler. Bennett joined in fall 2015 from CNN International.

The company, through the notice, also informed the employees that they were not required to report to work until their termination date so they could find another job. They will still be able to receive their compensation and benefits during that time even if they opt to skip work.

Those given notices reportedly included editors, engineers, cameramen, coordinators, floor directors, graphics artists, and associate producers.
