The Connecticut judicial branch began laying off 113 workers Thursday. Officials said some of the notices won’t go out until next week.
This second round of layoffs brings the total number of judicial employees losing their jobs to 239. The latest round of layoffs impacted caseflow coordinators, family relations counselors, adult probation, and juvenile probation.
But judicial officials warned that 239 doesn’t represent the final number. The total number of layoffs will be determined once the General Assembly adopts a new budget.
The General Assembly is expected to hold a special session next week to approve a $19.75 billion budget that closes a projected $960 million deficit.
