Intel, Oregon's largest employer, laid off hundreds of workers last Friday, including some at its four Hillsboro campuses.
First reported by The Oregonian, the layoffs are said to include workers in the U.S. and Costa Rica. Intel did not immediately respond to questions from Pamplin Media Group, but in a statement to the media Intel confirmed the layoffs. It did not specify how many people were let go, nor the reason for the cuts.
"Changes in our workforce are driven by the needs and priorities of our business, which we continually evaluate," the company said. "We are committed to treating all impacted employees with professionalism and respect."
Intel's last big layoff came in 2016 when the company let go more than 12,000 employees, including several in Hillsboro.
