Mercer to Close One of its Two Offices in Houston and Affects 71 Employees

Mercer will close one of its two offices in Houston. The office at 10900 Corporate Centre Drive will close on July 29, affecting 71 employees, including temporary agency workers. Job cuts are expected to begin June 30. Affected employees do not have bumping rights, meaning workers with more seniority cannot take the jobs of those with less seniority. Mercer's consulting office at 500 Dallas St. is not impacted at all. That downtown office employs 86 people. The company also has two Dallas locations, in addition to dozens of offices across the U.S. and the world.
