The dismissals affect offices at 1 Madison Ave. and 11 Madison Ave. and will extend through Aug. 6, the bank wrote in a Department of Labor filing. The firm decided last year to scale down its investment bank and announced intent to cut 3,500 jobs.
Financial companies, mainly in Western Europe and the U.S., disclosed plans last year to eliminate more than 200,000 jobs as they adapt to capital requirements and prolonged economic weakness. Jack Grone, a spokesman for Zurich-based Credit Suisse, declined to comment beyond the filing.
The firm said last month that first-quarter profit fell 96 percent to 44 million Swiss francs ($47 million) after it booked accounting charges related to its own debt and costs for 2011 bonuses. The company said at the time it’s on track to save about 2 billion francs in annual costs by the end of 2013.
