When Employment Changes - Temporary Layoff

Main content start

A temporary layoff, sometimes called a furlough, is a temporary suspension of work without pay for a regular employee due to a lack of sufficient work. During this period, the ongoing employment relationship is maintained by continuation of benefits, including the ability to use accrued vacation, PTO, and floating holiday, as well as an expected return to work date. This guide to a temporary lay off includes information about health coverage (medical, dental, and vision), life insurance, AD&D, disability coverage, tuition grants, FSA, dependent day care, retirement plans, vacation/PTO pay, and COBRA costs.
