Temporary layoff info for state employees

Gov. Inslee has signed the 2017–19 state operating budget. For positions funded by the operating budget, all notices for temporary layoff, reduction in work hours and emergency leave without pay have been rescinded. 

The Legislature, however, has not yet approved the 2017-19 capital budget. Instead, the Legislature approved a partial capital budget that only provides re-appropriated funds to continue current (2015–17) projects.

OFM is working with agencies to resolve challenges in implementing the partial capital budget and to minimize impacts on staff. Where legally permissible, agencies are using other funds to keep capital-funded employees on the job. OFM is working with agencies to determine how long agencies will be able to carry capital-funded employees with other funds.
