Furloughs delayed: federal stimulus relief coming

December 29, 2020

State executive branch and UH delay furloughs until at least July 1, 2021

Crediting the passage of a $900 billion federal stimulus relief bill, Gov. David Ige sent a memo to some employees today stating: "After an initial review of the new, $900 billion federal COVID-19 relief bill, we found it provides enough direct support to programs in Hawaiʻi that I am able to delay furloughs for executive branch employees until at least July 1, 2021."

HGEA stands by our position that any unilaterally implemented furloughs would be unlawful and violate the terms of your contract.
