State Judicial Branch lays off another 113 employees
HARTFORD — The Connecticut Judicial Branch sent out another 113 layoff notices to employees last week as a result of the state’s ongoing budget crisis.
The cuts, announced Monday, were spread across the state and are based on seniority. The list of employees who lost their jobs include 10 case flow coordinators, seven family relations counselors, 22 adult probation officers, 15 juvenile probation officers, 53 judicial marshals and five intake, assessment and referral specialists.
Chief Court Administrator Patrick Carroll III sent a letter to Gov. Dannel Malloy and state lawmakers earlier this month stating that the governor’s proposed cut of $57 million would result in “no fewer than an additional 600 layoffs” on top of 126 terminations in April.
A total of 239 Judicial Branch employees lost their jobs due to cutbacks.
