What is an employee furlough?

An employee furlough is a mandatory suspension from work without pay. It can be as brief or as long as the employer wants. An organization may furlough employees as a cost-saving measure when it doesn't want to lay off staff but lacks the resources to continue paying them.

This information is up to date as of the above date. We are monitoring the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFRCA) and similar legislation that may require pay during COVID-19 closures or leave, and will provide updates as they occur.
