More than 2,000 people with job offers at Google no longer have those jobs, according to The New York Times. The tech giant has withdrawn offers to temp and contract workers who had agreed to take upcoming positions.

In an email statement, Google said, “We’re slowing our pace of hiring and investment, and are not bringing on as many new starters as we had planned at the beginning of the year."

According to the Times' report, some of those offered the work at Google left full-time jobs to take the positions with the tech giant. They were not offered compensation by the company after their offers were rescinded.

Google has seen advertising revenue drop amid the coronavirus pandemic, which may be the reason for these job cuts.

The search engine titan’s stock has risen 6% over the last three months.
