HR Policy - UW System Administrative Policy 1200 - Interim 04 - Interim: Furlough
The University of Wisconsin (UW) System is facing increased fiscal challenges as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents, under the authority granted to it in Wis. Stat. s. 36.115, has authorized the UW System to implement a variety of workforce reduction and cost saving measures, beyond existing layoff policies, to address these financial challenges in a way that minimizes layoffs and maximizes the UW System’s ability to continue to perform its critical educational and outreach mission. The furlough process is not a substitute for layoff, non-renewal, or termination processes as outlined in the Wisconsin Administrative code, systemwide policies, and institutional policies.
