T-Mobile Lays Off More Than 200 Sprint Employees In Overland Park, Kansas

Jun 23, 2020

More than 200 Sprint employees in Overland Park, Kansas, have been laid off since the company merged with T-Mobile.

The Kansas City Star reports a June 17 notification to state regulators shows T-Mobile cut 241 positions at the former Sprint headquarters. A judge approved a merger of the two companies in February and it became official in April. A T-Mobile spokesperson says the company plans to eventually hire 5,000 new workers across the organization.

In a statement, the company said the layoffs in Overland Park were part of an overall study of where to best place the company's resources.
