AT&T plans to close the Springfield call center and cut 188 jobs starting August 3.
Details about the layoffs come from a notice the company filed with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. Illinois law requires that a company laying off 50 or more people notify the state.
Dallas-based AT&T had already said earlier this summer that the call center’s work would be consolidated at other locations in Illinois.
The Springfield call center opened in 2001.
