ORLANDO, Fla. – One of Central Florida’s biggest banking companies is laying off more than 100 employees in Orlando.

Wells Fargo filed a notice on Tuesday with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity that it would lay off 103 people.

All of those people work in the bank’s consumer and small business banking division, in a facility along Lake Underhill Road.

The workers handled escalations, which involves dealing with customer complaints and inquiries.

The bank told the state it expects most, if not all, of the workers will accept severance.
