One-Week Voluntary Furlough Offered Between May 15-July 30

The University will again offer interested staff the opportunity to take a voluntary one week furlough between May 15 and July 30, 2016.  Eligibility includes all full-time and part-time U.S. staff who have been employed by the University for at least six months at the time the furlough begins.

An eligible staff member may take a one week, unpaid voluntary furlough during the above dates, with advance approval of his/her supervisor. This unpaid furlough must be in a full week increment (i.e., Monday through Friday) reflecting the employee’s normal weekly schedule, and it must not interfere with staffing priorities of the campus or department. 

A Request for Voluntary Staff Furlough Form, including requested signatures, must be submitted to the Payroll Office at least two weeks in advance of the furlough. Both hourly and salaried time records for the furlough days should be left blank and the Payroll Office will enter the appropriate coding to show that the days are for unpaid furlough time.

Questions should be directed to humanresources@webster.edu.
