(UPDATE) Layoffs Watch ’12: A Lone Wolf in KPMG Forensics

The aforementioned forced rankings appear to still be taking effect. A tipster laments:

I just got laid off from KPMG's Forensic practice in Los Angeles [and] there were a few other associates in my group that got laid off as well.

Our tipster claims that this is only happening at associate level although the layoffs in tax and audit were hitting seniors, managers, and senior managers as well. The IT advisory cuts were rumored only to have affected associates.

If you've recently been served up something cold (other than ice cream), drop us a line.

UPDATE:
Someone else got in touch with us and it's entirely possible that this is an isolated incident:

This is just shedding completely unnecessary weight. One guy let go because he sucked, and now he's going around the world telling everyone about layoffs.  Reality – guy should've been fired, partners felt bad and laid him off instead. 

Do us a favor, L.A. forensics – get in touch and help us straighten this out once and for all. This is cutting into our Dutch field hockey research.
