Furlough MOA

The college originally asked us to take 2 furlough days between the dates of June 15th and July 25th. Realizing the significant budget shortfall we face, and the fact that the Board is looking at potential layoffs, we chose to voluntarily take 6 furlough days, in alignment with faculty, between those dates. In order to prevent long term loss of income, the College enrolled in the Oregon Employment Department’s (OED) Work Share Program. For each week that we take a furlough day through July 25, all classified members (who do not have any other jobs), will receive approximately 20% of the weekly benefit amount that they are eligible to receive of their Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit plus the the additional $600 per week CARES Act benefits enacted by the Federal Government back in March.
