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.
