Around 12 staffers at LexisNexis are in consultation over their jobs, which may be outsourced to the Philippines, The Bookseller understands.
The consultation, among employees in the copy-editing department at the law and accountancy publisher, is thought to be ongoing; LexisNexis refused to confirm the consultation.
M.d. Christian Fleck said: “As a global organisation we always look to optimise the best use of our expertise around the world. In practice, colleagues from several of our overseas offices including the US and the Philippines are supporting our work in the UK on a day-to-day basis.”
