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 Topeka Capital-Journal reports 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.
