State Workers

Unpaid furlough today for many state workers

State employees who work for nearly 50 state agencies, boards or commissions will have an unpaid furlough day today.

This is the third state furlough day to save payroll costs across state government. The Legislature approved 10 days of furloughs for most state workers to save $73 million over the next year.

Public-safety personnel, those who bring revenue to the state and those responsible for protecting the vulnerable are exempt.
