This program enables employees to take up to 90 unpaid days off each calendar year while continuing to earn leave time and seniority.
Employees need the approval of their agency in order to participate in the program. Furlough may consist of shorter work days, intermittent days off, or consecutive days off. It may NOT be used as a replacement for sick leave or disability leave, or to seek or engage in alternate employment.
The approval of the CSC Chair is required for Local agencies seeking to implement a voluntary furlough program. Employees should contact their Human Resource Officer for more information.
