About 40 employees of First Data Corp. in Omaha lost their jobs Thursday, among about 70 total positions eliminated by the Atlanta payment processing firm.
The layoffs were part of the same Financial Services segment restructuring effort that resulted in 60 Omaha jobs cut in April. That was the first sizable layoff since July 2010, when the company eliminated 50 jobs here.
Between November 2007 and July 2010, the company laid off about 800 employees in Omaha.
The company said eligible employees will receive severance benefits and outplacement services.
