HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget office says 825 jobs have been eliminated so far from the executive branch of Connecticut’s government and more state employee layoffs are expected.

The figure announced Thursday by the Office of Policy and Management marks 76 addition job cuts since the agency’s previous June 29 announcement. The figure does not include jobs already eliminated in higher education or the state’s judicial branch.

The latest list of employees receiving pink slips to help balance the state budget include employees at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington and the state’s Department of Rehabilitative Services.

Affected employees will continue to receive their salary and maintain state benefits throughout a contractual notice period.
