HARTFORD–Another round of layoff notices were sent to state employees.

In all, 30 employees in four Executive Branch departments received notices: four in the Department of Developmental Services, one in the Department of Corrections, one in the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and four in the Office of Governmental Accountability.

Since the layoffs began on April 11, 680 Executive Branch employees and 239 Judicial Branch employees have gotten notices. Here’s the breakdown so far:

Gov. Dan Malloy has said that he expects there to be more than 2,000 positions eliminated. Thursday’s notice from the Office of Policy and Management said “there will be additional reduction notices in the future.”

State lawmakers approved a new $19.7 billion budget just last week, which eliminated a $960 million deficit through budget cuts, layoffs and other means.
