Furlough Guide
  • Definition-What is a furlough?
  • Furlough is defined as the placement of an employee in a temporary non-duty, non-pay statusbecause of lack of funds.
  • An intermittent furlough is a furlough action in which the non-duty, non-pay status occurs discontinuously over a period of time (e.g. one work day per month for a six month period) rather than consecutively.
furlough considerations
Furlough Considerations
  • Is the funding decline part of the normal budget process or is this a unique situation such as a reduction in grant or federal funds?
  • How long will the situation last? Is this a temporary short-term situation versus long-term?
  • Are the affected employees Labor Contract or State Personnel Rules covered?
furlough considerations5
Furlough Considerations
  • Employees who have special skills or are considered “essential to mission” may be excluded from participation in furloughs. Mission essential employees should be identified early in the process to avoid the appearance of preferential treatment.
  • If time and circumstances allow, agencies may wish to consider implementing voluntary furloughs prior to implementing an involuntary furlough. Employees from other non-affected work areas may volunteer and be selected for furlough if the furlough will result in a savings that offsets the funding shortfall.
  • Supervisory and management employees should not necessarily be excluded from the furlough requirement unless there are business-related factors preventing their participation.
  • Furlough shall not be used as a substitute for permanent part-time employment.
