Yahoo! confirmed today that they will be laying off 1,500 employees globally including "an undisclosed amount at its Burbank campus on Empire Avenue," the Burbank Leader reports this morning.

However, they would not reveal how many of the 1,000 Burbank employees would be let go. There are no plans to close the Burbank office, but other regional offices where more layoffs are expected could close and be consolidated. Other locations in California are in Santa Monica, Sunnyvale and Santa Clara.
