The Sunday Business Post have reported that the US layoffs have already been announced, with jobs in Europe, which include the Dublin offices, and Asia expected to be cut in the coming weeks following a consultation process with staff impacted by the cuts.
TikTok is the latest tech company to announce layoffs -- with Twitter, Facebook and Google all announcing mass worldwide layoffs within the past three months.
Google's parent company Alphabet announced that they were to axe 12,000 jobs worldwide, reducing their workforce by 6% following changing behaviours following the pandemic. They are yet to confirm just how many Irish jobs will be affected by the layoffs.

The company employs 5,000 people in Ireland which has been rocked by a number of job losses in the tech sector after Twitter, Stripe and Microsoft all recently announced job losses.
Similarly, Amazon announced 18,000 job losses, while earlier this month cloud-based software company Salesforce announced it will layoff 10 percent of its employees -- about 8,000 workers.
