INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - About 100 IPL employees in Indiana will lose their jobs as part of a restructuring by the utility's parent company.

The AES Corporation announced the reorganization plan Monday. The layoffs, including 60 more workers in Dayton, Ohio, will take place by the second quarter of this year, which begins April 1.
