89 layoffs ordered at UConn Health Center as part of state budget cuts

Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's administration has issued layoff notices to 89 state employees at University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington as part of an expected 2,000 or more layoffs to help balance the state budget, according to the Hartford Courant.

The layoffs primarily involve employees who work with the Department of Correction's inmate care program. Fewer workers are needed to provide healthcare services to the prison population due to a sharp decline in the number of inmates in recent years, according to the report.

The governor's administration and the Connecticut Legislature are working to eliminate the $922 million deficit the state faces for fiscal year 2017, according to the report.
