A non-permanent reduction in wages due to lack of work, a projected operational budget deficit or other decline in financial resources.
FY21 Staff Furloughs
Updated May 19, 2020
We will institute our furlough next fiscal year, which begins on July 1, 2020. To minimize the impact on employees in our lower pay bands, an interim furlough policy was developed.
This measure will be applied to all administrative, faculty and classified non bargaining employees as follows:
|Employee Wage||Furlough Leave Days||Equivalent Wage Reduction|
|$0 to $37,999||Mandated days only||0|
|$38,000 to $64,999||10 days||3.8%|
|$65,000 to $99,999||12 days||4.6%|
|$100,000 to $149,999||14 days||5.4%|
|$150,000 to $199,999||16 days||6.1%|
|$200,000 and above||18 days||6.9%|
Employees who are at the minimum of the pay scale for their job classification or at the minimum Fair Labor Standards Act salary threshold will be exempt from the wage reduction. The furlough will include 7 mandatory days that will extend the University’s closure periods for Thanksgiving and winter break. Employees may take the remainder of their furlough days at their discretion with approval from their supervisor.
