Barclays announced plans to cut 110 jobs in France. This will reduce its French workforce to about 1,200 people after the restructuring and appears to be part of a process of retrenchment by the British bank which is cutting its presence in other European, non-British markets. The bank announced the job-reduction plan after the suspension of the previously announced restructuring measures in 2013.

Updated 2/1/2015: Barclay's 'plan social', originally approved in September 2014, has been rejected by the Paris 'tribunal administratif' on foot of irregularities in the procedures followed, notably as regards the estimated number of job losses. Nonetheless, headcount at Barclays France has declined by at least 100 since the company initiated its recent 'plans socials'.
