Thomson Reuters to close Fort Worth office

Thomson Reuters, a news and information services company, will close its downtown Fort Worth office in the spring, although it said "the vast majority" of the 308 affected employees will be offered positions in its Carrollton office or given the chance to work from home. Five will see their positions eliminated at the company's tax and accounting  unit, Reuters said in a notice to the Texas Workforce Commission. The anticipated closing date for the office in the Burnett Plaza building at 801 Cherry St. is about April 30, 2014. The company said about 62 of the affected workers are eligible for a severance package and can take it if they choose not to relocate.

Thomson Reuters moved into Burnett Plaza in 2000 when it consolidated two previous Fort Worth offices. It established a Fort Worth presence when it acquired Practitioners Publishing, which serves accountants.
