Are there notice requirements when employees are placed on furlough?

Employees should be notified of the furlough. When possible, reasonable advance notice must be given to employees before the furlough begins. In addition, furloughs for longer periods of time may be affected by the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act and some states’ WARN laws. For example, in California, 50 or more employee furloughs may trigger California WARN Act notice obligations.
