Nova ljubljanska banka (NLB), the largest Slovenian bank will lay off 444 employees by the end of June 2014. The measure is due to the economic recession and the consequent increase of clients debts: the bank needs consequently both additional capital and a thorough restructuring.

See NLB 2013 and NLB 2010 for previous restructuring measures.

Update, 23-10-2013: According to new sources, more severe job dismissals are to be implemented as previously announced. By the end of 2014, the bank is to reduce its staff by 700 workers.

228 working positions are to be cut by the end of 2013. 80 workers were already dismissed on 22 October, and the remaining 148 positions are cut through non-replacement of retiring workers. In 2014, the workforce is to be reduced by another 472 positions.
