New Delhi: The editor of Barron’s, a sister publication of Wall Street Journal, on Friday accidentally hit the ‘Reply All’ option while he was sending an email in which he was talking about the upcoming wave of layoffs at the publication.

Ed Finn was intending to reply to Wall Street Journal’s editor Gerard Baker, regarding employee buyout options.

On Friday, the employees of Wall Street Journal employees received an email about the jobs cuts.

However, Finn said he did not mean to tell his employees. In fact he was trying to forward the email to another executive.

“That was not intentional. It was a mistake. We had not been told what package was being offered to the several Barron’s folks who would be laid off next week,” Finn told Politico.

The Wall Street Journal’s editor Gerard Baker later sent an email to the employees notifying them that the mail was about WSJ buyouts.

“The email Gerry Baker just sent about wsj buyouts says that dj is offering 1.5x the standard buyout package. Are we planning to go to the employees we are laying off at Barron’s next week and offer them 1x the standard package. That could create some problems. Please advise.”

Here is the email:

Almar, John, Mike,

The email Gerry Baker just sent about wsj buyouts says that dj is offering 1.5x the standard buyout package.

Are we planning to go to the employees we are laying off at Barron’s next week and offer them 1x the standard package. That could create some problems. Please advise.

Thanks and best,

Ed
