The job cuts, which amount to roughly 2% of the company’s full-time workforce, included about 1,000 contractors, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. The dismissals came in recent weeks, the person said, asking not to be identified discussing information that isn’t public. A spokesman for Jacksonville, Florida-based FIS declined to comment.
