The car brand Fisker announces a huge round of layoffs

The bankrupt car brand Fisker Inc. has notified its employees that the number of positions must once again be cut sharply. In February, 15 percent were otherwise fired.

Fisker Inc. is now worth less than founder Henrik Fisker's house. Still – or perhaps in spite of it – management is trying hard to save the business.

And that means another round of layoffs. Similar to the one in February, when Fisker said goodbye to 15 percent of its employees, this is a large round of redundancies.

This can be read from the message that Fisker has sent to its employees. It has come with 60 days' notice, as it must according to American law.

This is what the medium Business Insider writes based on the message from the Fisker management.

– Fisker is investigating all possibilities to find money for the continued operation. This involves ongoing negotiations with possible buyers and investors. Just as different possibilities for reconstruction (of the car brand, ed.) are being investigated.

– However, it is possible that these attempts will fail, writes Fisker in the notification to the employees.

Incidentally, these days it has been 6 weeks since Fisker Inc. asked the Magna Steyr factory in Austria, where the brand is located, to stop production. Fisker initially said that production would be idle for 6 weeks. On that front, there is nothing new.
