Briljent to cut 100-130 jobs

A Fort Wayne-based consulting company has notified the state that it plans to eliminate 100 to 130 jobs at its Indianapolis operation.

Briljent LLC submitted a notice of mass layoff pursuant to the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (or WARN) Act. The state received the paperwork on Friday.

“It is our expectation that the layoff will be permanent,” the filing stated.

The jobs will end during a two-week period beginning May 31. Workers don’t have bumping rights.

Kathy Carrier, a former Lincoln National Corp. training director, founded Briljent in 1998 as Training Solutions Group.
