"All impacted are being notified of separation with at least 60 days' notice," Marc Nadler, Intel's director of corporate people movement team, stated in the EDD filing.

With these latest , Intel has now revealed plans to eliminate 378 jobs in the Bay Area, a review of the company's WARN letters shows.

These cutbacks by Intel are part of the company's previously announced plans for worldwide staffing reductions.
