Bank of America has laid off employees in Charlotte, in cuts stretching across various parts of the company, the bank confirmed Friday.

Dozens of employees lost their jobs. Bank of America employs roughly 15,000 in the Charlotte region.

Bank spokeswoman Nicole Nastacie would not disclose the types of jobs targeted or the exact number of layoffs.

There are jobs being eliminated across multiple lines of business in Charlotte, Nastacie said. These decisions are part of ongoing efforts to help us become a simpler, more stable organization.

The announcement comes after Bloomberg reported Monday that Bank of America told Texas regulators last week that it will slash 411 jobs from a unit that services troubled mortgages.

Charlotte-based Bank of America in May laid off a batch of employees who worked in uptown Charlotte.

Nastacie said Charlotte continues to be a strategic employment location for the bank.
