CenturyLink is laying off about 1,000 workers companywide, officials for the Monroe, La.-based telecommunications company confirmed Friday.

The company declined to say how many of its more than 5,000 employees in Colorado would be affected.

"CenturyLink, as all businesses, continually evaluates its cost structure and business practices and adjusts its operations to meet the needs of the business," Mark Molzen, a company spokesman, wrote in an e-mail to The Denver Post. "After careful consideration, CenturyLink has made the difficult decision to reduce its workforce. This includes current positions as well as not backfilling open positions."
