More layoff notices went out to state employees on Tuesday.
Out of a total state executive branch workforce of 31,200 as of March 31 (excluding higher education), 712 positions have been reduced during this ongoing process, state officials said.
Officials continue to say there will be additional reduction notices in the future, all as an effort to balance the state’s budget deficit.
To reduce the budget, the governor said he is proposing cuts to the state workforce by 2,500. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the 2,500 number is not strictly layoffs with the rest will be made up of retirements and an unfilled positions.
