Los Angeles: Microsoft-owned  GitHub is the latest tech company that has fired more than 140-member strong entire engineering team in India.

As per reports, over 140 employees were affected by the layoffs, which were not based on performance. The impacted employees were offered two months’ pay as severance package. Besides, they were made to sign a strict non-disclosure agreement, reports Inc42.

In a statement, a GitHub spokesperson confirmed the development with Inc42.

The statement said: “As part of the reorganisation plan shared in February, workforce reductions were made today as part of difficult but necessary decisions and realignments to both protect the health of our business in the short term and grant us the capacity to invest in our long-term strategy moving forward."

"This is part of that previously shared plan on February 9th, please refer to that statement for more,” a GitHub spokesperson told Inc42.
