News : Connecticut Department of Labor to Issue 95 Layoff Notices
New Haven, CT, USA, Aug 5, 2015 -- The Labor Department announced Wednesday that it was eliminating 95 positions as part of a cost saving and consolidation effort in response to a drop in federal funding.
As a result of the layoffs, the Labor Department will reduce the number of job centers from 11 to 6, and consolidate its other functions, like field audits and appeal locations. It will also merge two call centers. The consolidated call center will be located in Middletown.
Under the collective bargaining agreements that cover these employees, the state must provide at least six weeks’ notice, which means the layoffs will be effective October 1. In addition, many employees whose positions have been eliminated may have "bumping" rights, either within the Labor Department or, in some cases, across state government. As a result, additional layoff notices may be provided in the coming weeks.
A press release from the Office of Policy and Management says the department is making significant transition assistance available to its impacted employees.
The reduction in staff is necessary because of the loss of federal funding.
