Toshiba Corp. is considering slashing several thousands of jobs worldwide as it aims to restructure its loss-making, television, personal computer and white goods businesses, sources close to the matter said Tuesday.

The scandal-hit conglomerate is expected to solicit early retirements and to transfer workers, the sources said, adding that the company could unveil such plans on Monday.

The envisaged job cuts are part of Toshiba's broader restructuring following revelations this year that the company inflated profits over a period of almost seven years.
