More Layoffs at Sprint's HQ in Overland Park


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — More than half of the fall layoffs at Sprint Corporation occurred at the company's Overland Park headquarters.  The Kansas City Star reports that 1,700 jobs were slashed companywide this fall. Among them, 910 jobs were cut in October and November in Overland Park.  The disclosure came in reports Sprint made to Kansas officials under a federal labor law that requires public notice of mass layoffs. The notice is intended to give employees time to prepare for the job loss and make plans to find other work or seek additional training.  The letter says Sprint is eliminating 458 additional positions at its Overland Park campus.  Chief executive officer Marcelo Claure has made cost cutting one of his priorities in taking the helm of Sprint.
