April 17th CCAO Webinar on Layoffs and Furloughs (in light of COVID-19)




Friday, April 17, 2020

1:00 – 2:00 P.M.

DESCRIPTION:  Counties and other public employers are facing revenue uncertainty as a result of the economic downturn from the Coronavirus.  For most public employers, personnel costs comprise a substantial portion of expenditures. As a result, employers may need to consider temporary furloughs or other personnel measures as a means to reduce expenditures. In addition, some departments may be experiencing a reduction in the workload during the pandemic. This webinar will summarize civil service laws governing layoffs and furloughs and provide an update on other employment law issues arising from the coronavirus.
