Rita Hurst

we were going to pay our employees their normal pay for the next two weeks - it seems that this does not satisfy the regulation for 80 hours at 2/3 pay but I think they'll make more for their regular hours at normal pay

If the office is closed except for emergencies- then does it count as closed? Not all employees are participating in this.
Carl Magyar

To be clear if an employee makes the personal decision to apply for unemployment are they abandoning their paid leave benefit. Self furloughing?
Heather Nelson

Furlough is mandatory suspension without pay. They return to work when the period is over. Layoff - they don't return to work
