It has been reported that IT company Tech Mahindra has confirmed the loss of 200 jobs from its offices in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The losses are expected to take effect on 3 January 2016. The job cuts follow the loss of a contract with the mobile phone and Internet provider EE. The contract is not being reallocated; EE are taking the work in-house. The loss of the contract is particularly damaging for Tech Mahindra as it formed the 'primary source' of income for the company. A spokesman for the company stated that they will offer compensation and adequate aid with job transitions for the affected employees.
