According to the Federal Application for employment benefits, Computer Science Corp. is outsourcing work to an offshore center and in the process is retrenching the services of about five hundred workers. Experts believe this laying off of workers is because of CSC’s proposed merger with HP (Hewlett-Packard Enterprise).However, CSC refutes this as the merger is destined to take place sometime after March next year.
According to Richard Adamoni , from CSC , this measures of austerity of reducing the workforce is in line with their normal business process and has no connection with the forthcoming merger.
