This policy applies to all employees in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University, unless specifically covered by collective bargaining agreements made between Gallaudet University and certified bargaining agents.
The President, with approval of the Board of Trustees and in consultation with the Office of General Counsel (“OGC”), may institute a full or partial shutdown of programs and services and as a result temporarily place employees on leave without pay status (furlough) to preserve the financial well-being of the institution. The President will determine the duration of any furlough. Furloughs will be conducted in a manner that is fair and is sensitive to the mission of the University and in compliance with any applicable legal requirements and when applicable, the University Faculty Handbook. The President will typically follow the guidelines below, but may deviate when necessary in the interests of the University.
Within programs and services, short-term temporary, adjunct, substitute, and on-call employees will usually be furloughed first, followed by extended temporary employees and then regular status employees. Employees specifically assigned to a project funded by a grant may be exempt if a furlough would jeopardize fulfillment of the conditions of the grant.
