Oracle Cerner has started another round of layoffs that appears to be part of a restructuring plan Oracle Corp. approved in fiscal year 2022 to bolster operational efficiencies after its acquisitions, including Cerner Corp., according to SEC filings.

A number of Oracle Cerner employees received notice Thursday that their employment would end on March 31, and some took to social media to say that they had been called into impromptu meetings with executives and notified of the layoffs.
