Furloughed vs Laid Off, What you Need to Know


Morgan Henry

The Coronavirus has triggered a surge in layoffs.

As the country prepares to fight the current crisis nonessential workers have been asked to stay home.

This has led to a record number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits.

In lieu of layoffs, many companies will choose to furlough employees.

But what does a furlough mean, exactly — and how is it different from being laid off?

A furlough is an employer-mandated, temporary, unpaid leave from work.

It is an option an employer can take as a cost-saving measure while continuing to offer health insurance benefits to the employee. 

Furloughs can reduce labor costs without adding new costs such as severance packages and outplacement services.
