First Data lays off more employees

Global technology company First Data is laying off a second wave of employees as it closes its Coral Springs call center. The company told the state labor department this week it is laying off 105 workers at the site, 4000 Coral Ridge Dr., by May 12. That's in addition to 159 the company told the state about last month. Those workers will be laid off by April.

A third wave of layoffs is possible, a company spokeswoman said. First Data has said this is a cost-cutting move. The affected employees were told of the plan in July and will receive severence pay, according to the company. Other First Data departments at the site will remain after the call center closes.
