“Analysis is under way to determine which workgroups will be eligible for these incentives, as well as permitted participation levels by functional area,” the company said in a statement.
There will be no changes to retirement eligibility or payments, the company said. However, employees who are eligible for the buyouts and also eligible to retire may accept the buyout and retire.
Although details will be announced no later than the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, FedEx said it is making the announcement now to help employees in their planning.
FedEx said it will release additional information about these measures and future plans at its investors and lenders meeting Oct. 9-10.
FedEx, which had sales of $42.7 billion in 2011, has 300,000 employees worldwide.
