Layoffs are often a product of corporate mergers as the combined company seeks to streamline and eliminate duplication. PVH said some of the jobs lost would be moved to other offices.
The job cuts began March 11, when PVH told workers that Warnaco’s Florence, Italy, office would be closed this year and that most employees there would not be offered jobs elsewhere.
The company also said Warnaco’s facilities in Duncansville and Huntingdon, Pa., would be closed. And workers in New York City; Milford, Conn.; Hong Kong and elsewhere were given notice.
“The company expects to undertake additional actions, including additional headcount reductions and the possibility of additional facility closings, in the United States and abroad,” the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Friday. “The employment termination effective dates will commence March 15, 2013 and are expected to continue through February 13, 2015, with most terminations to become effective during the second half of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014.”
PVH said the streamlining effort would initially cost about $175 million over three years.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
