Xerox has notified "a number of employees" that their jobs will be eliminated.

Employees in Webster, Canada, and throughout the U.S. will be impacted, but Xerox spokesman Bill McKee declined to share how many workers have been let go.

Some employees will complete their work Thursday while others will end their employment over the next several weeks. Employees will receive severance packages and outplacement counseling.

McKee says the staff reductions come as the company "continues restructuring activities as part of its initiative to optimizing its operations globally."

The positions that will be eliminated include IT software engineers, systems engineers, program managers and associated support as well as finance managers.
