Furlough Days Required for Managers at Silverton Hospital in Oregon
At Silverton (Ore.) Hospital, managers are taking bi-weekly furlough days as part of a 90-days austerity program, which is an alternative to "extensive layoffs," according to a Statesman Journal report.
Managers must take one eight-hour day off for every 80-hour pay period, according to the report. The unpaid work days will account to a pay cut of roughly 10 percent for managers. The austerity program will conclude April 8.
The hospital has also frozen its hiring and capital expenditures for the length of the austerity program, according to the report.
