FY20 Reduction Actions
Throughout FY20, Ohio University responded to the budget crisis with a series of reduction actions, including a hiring freeze, FY21 staff furloughs, voluntary administration salary reductions, position eliminations, and operational spending limits.
FY21 Staff Furloughs
For FY21, which began on July 1, 2020, a furlough was instituted for all administrative, faculty and classified non bargaining employees. To minimize the impact on employees in our lower pay bands, an interim furlough policy was developed. On March 16, 2021, President Nellis announced that the University-wide furlough will come to an end ahead of schedule at the end of March.
