Have a question about the furlough?

If you are on furlough the week you would like to receive your Low Earnings Report, you may visit the Payroll Department with your pay stub and they will issue the Low Earnings Report. I am a monthly employee and use the electronic timesheet (FTL). My scheduled furlough week is 25-FEB-08 to 02-MAR-2008. Would I be able to request a Low Earnings Report on 25-FEB-08, before my paystub issued, which will be in MAR-08?

No, you must have your pay stub reflecting the furlough deduction in order to receive the Low Earnings Report.

If a weekly employee is promoted to a monthly job classification and he had already taken one or all of his required four days of furlough, how would the difference between a four-day weekly employee requirement and a five-day monthly employee requirement be resolved?

The effective date for a promotion from a nonexempt to exempt position would occur on the first day of the next furlough period. For example, an employee who is notified of a promotion in mid-March would receive the promotion on April 1, 2008.

My question relates to colloquia. If I am interested in a colloquium topic, and if that colloquium happens to fall on a day which is a furlough day for me, is it possible for me to attend?

Yes, you may attend colloquia sessions, as members of the public are also welcome to attend.

Employment during Furlough

About a month ago I submitted the required form to obtain advance approval for doing outside work during furlough periods. I have received no reply. Can we assume automatic approval for doing other work during furlough?

The outside employment form serves as notification to the laboratory that you are seeking outside employment. WDRS reviews the form to determine there is no actual or apparent conflict of interest. If a potential conflict of interest is identified, the form is sent to Procurement for review. A Procurement representative would then contact you to reconcile any points of conflict of interest. If unable to reconcile, you would be notified that the outside employment at that organization is not allowable by the laboratory.
