The Senate Republican leadership has hired Linda Yelmini of Windsor, chief labor relations official for several administrations until her awkward departure from government under Gov. Dannel P. Malloy late in 2014, as a part-time consultant and legislative researcher.
The administration of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy reached a settlement Wednesday evening with Linda Yelmini, the chief labor relations lawyer dismissed a year ago in what the administration termed a layoff and Yelmini called a firing without cause. The agreement is worth $325,000, according to the administration.
The administration of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy abruptly notified Linda J. Yelmini, the state’s longtime director of labor relations, that she is being laid off, leaving surprised union leaders to wonder what the move signals in Malloy’s approach to labor.
