The news comes from a monthly report filed with Illinois regulators Tuesday.
This is the highest number of job losses planned by Illinois companies since December.
The largest number of layoffs will happen in August at Quadgraphics in Woodstock, due to a restructuring.
AT&T plans to lay off 188 workers in Springfield starting August 3.
