State Mistakenly Notifies Employees They Were Fired

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Department of Administration has apologized after several state employees were mistakenly notified that they had been fired.

Department spokesman John Milburn said Thursday a computer glitch caused the problem. The email was intended for people who retired or were fired last year, saying the state would no longer furnish them with W-2 forms.

The email was instead went to 3,800 state employees. Milburn says he wasn’t sure how many people on the list should have received the email.

The administration department sent an email Thursday apologizing for the mistake.
