Marriott plans 35 layoffs in June, several hundred later

Bethesda-based Marriott International warned the state that it will lay off 35 employees in June, and potentially several hundred others later in the year, the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said Friday.

The company's layoff warning notice said it is reorganizing and outsourcing some "information resources" operations. The initial cuts are planned for June 28 in Bethesda, Frederick and Gaithersburg.

Marriott said several hundred more employees could be laid off between July and December. The company could not immediately be reached for comment.
