A dreary new round of layoff disclosures will eliminate the jobs of more than 900 workers in the Bay Area, cutbacks that have engulfed high-profile companies such as Doordash and DHL, official state labor agency filings show.

Three tech companies — Doordash, Airtable and Plaid — revealed plans to eliminate a combined 481 jobs, all in San Francisco.

Tech and biotech companies have completed or revealed a staggering total of more than 8,500 job cuts in the Bay Area over a period that began on Oct. 1 of this year, including the most recent crop of layoffs, according to a Bay Area News Group review of filings with the state Employment Development Department.

DHL Supply Chain has decided to cut 394 jobs in Livermore, representing the largest chunk of current layoffs, the WARN notices posted by the EDD show.

The DHL employees slated to lose their jobs are based at warehouse and logistics centers in Livermore, according to a WARN notice sent to the EDD. The DHL layoffs are due to take effect in February 2023.

San Francisco-based Doordash will cut 311 jobs in its headquarters city, the online food ordering and food delivery tech company told the EDD in the WARN notice. The Doordash staffing reductions are slated to take place in March 2023.

“Doordash Inc. has decided that it must permanently lay off a number of its employees in San Francisco,” the company stated in its filing. Doordash didn’t disclose the types of jobs that would be cut.

Airtable, which provides cloud-based software services such as a database-spreadsheet hybrid, is cutting 111 jobs in its headquarters city of San Francisco.

“There are currently approximately 542 Airtable employees who work at the San Francisco office or work remotely and report to the San Francisco office,” Abby Horrigan, a deputy general counsel with Airtable, wrote in the WARN letter to the EDD.

That means the 111 layoffs represent about 20% of the Airtable employees based in San Francisco. The cutbacks took effect on Thursday of this week, the WARN filing stated.

Plaid, a high-tech financial services company, has decided to jettison 59 jobs in San Francisco, where it is headquartered.

“Changing business needs require us to conduct a permanent reduction in force” in San Francisco, Meghan Welch, Plaid’s chief people officer, stated in the WARN letter to the EDD.
