If an employee separates from the University before using all of his/her furlough days, will those days expire?
By policy, unused furlough days will expire at the end of the term of the Plan or upon separation of employment if earlier. Supervisors and managers should work with employees to schedule the furlough time prior to separation. Managers and supervisors have the authority under policy to require the use of furlough time.

Can an employee use accrued furlough days as their last days on pay status?
