In a notice Monday to the state's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, the company said the 35 employees, all of whom work at the company's Baltimore County offices on Red Run Boulevard, would be laid off between Oct. 1 and January.

The cuts are part of the company's plan to streamline its technology group and outsource some of its work, said Mary Athridge, a company spokeswoman.

The company reported fiscal first-quarter profits last week of $60 million, a 25 percent increase compared with the year-earlier period.
