What’s happening at UiPath?

Software company UiPath announced today that it is laying off 10% of its workforce, affecting approximately 420 of its roughly 4,200 employees. The layoffs are part of a broader restructuring plan expected to conclude by the fiscal first quarter of 2026.

Company transition and leadership changes

The layoffs follow significant executive changes at UiPath.

  • Rob Enslin was replaced as CEO by co-founder and former CEO Daniel Dines in the fiscal first quarter of 2025.
  • This leadership change, occurring shortly after Enslin took over sole CEO duties in February, indicates substantial internal shifts.

Official statements and context

According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, UiPath anticipates restructuring costs up to $25 million due to the layoffs. The company is undergoing a strategic transition to streamline operations and adapt to changing market conditions.

Industry reaction

The announcement led to a 7% drop in UiPath’s stock as of 10:45 a.m. ET on Tuesday, reflecting investor concern over the company’s growth prospects.

Impact on Canadian staff

Termination agreements for UiPath employees

In Canada, non-unionized employees at UiPath are owed full severance pay when they lose their jobs due to downsizing, corporate restructuring, or the closure of the business.

This applies to individuals working in any capacity — full-time, part-time, hourly, or potentially even independent contractors — in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia.

Severance is the compensation provided to non-unionized workers in Canada by their employer when they are terminated without cause, and can be as much as 24 months’ paydepending on a number of factors.

Severance offers and deadlines

Before accepting a severance offer, double-check the amount using our firm’s free Severance Pay Calculator. It has helped millions of Canadians determine their entitlements.

In addition to your salary, make sure to factor in any other elements of your compensation (i.e. bonuses, commission, etc.).

If your employer’s offer falls short of what our Severance Pay Calculator says you are owed, it’s very likely that you have been wrongfully dismissed and should contact an experienced employment lawyer at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP.

Non-unionized employees in Canada have up to two years from the date of their dismissal to pursue proper severance pay. An employer’s deadline to sign back a severance offer is not legally enforceable or binding.
