Furlough Information for Employees Online
The Office of Human Resources is providing furlough information online at hr.wisc.edu/covid19/furlough. Employees will find information on the various types of furlough and how they will be implemented, as well as details on the Work-Share program, reassignments, and voluntary leaves of absence. Details are also provided on leave provisions, possible eligibility for unemployment benefits, and employee benefits during furlough. Translations of key materials into other languages will be added in the coming days. Employees are encouraged to review this information, including the frequently asked questions, in order to better understand how the cost-saving measures may affect them. Employees will receive notification of their status and additional information in May.
