The financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a budget shortfall for fiscal year 2021 for the State of Nevada and the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). As a result, the State of Nevada and Board of Regents adopted the following:
- Nevada Assembly Bill 3 (AB 3), passed by the Nevada State Legislature during the 31st special legislative session on July 20, 2020, includes salary reductions and furloughs for employees in the State’s classified system.
- Furlough leave and a corresponding salary reduction for all employees of the NSHE pursuant to Assembly Bill 3.
We know this is not an easy time and despite these difficult decisions, please know that you are valued. We hope these resources assist you to understand what a furlough is and what it means for you.
What is a furlough?
A furlough is the temporary placement of an employee on leave. No salary of any kind is paid for the predetermined, mandated number of days/hours during the leave period.
