The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services issued layoff notices to 600 employees on Friday.

The agency is trying to reduce its workforce by about 375 positions and still meet its obligations to care for abused and neglected children and provide other services.

The Department said the job eliminations were forced by the General Assembly, which cut $86 million from the department budget for the fiscal year.
