Like it or not we are all forced to face the harsh reality that we’re in the midst of tough economic times. Company closings and layoffs are occurring all around us, and LEAs are increasingly reminded of their fiduciary responsibilities. In examining solutions to budgetary constraints, the topics of furloughs and layoffs often surface for discussion.

During this webinar Jeffrey T. Sultanik, Esq. will discuss:

  • district/LEA rights and responsibilities when making staffing decisions related to furloughs and demotions,
  • employee rights and responsibilities throughout the furlough process,
  • the interplay between School Code, board policies and collective bargaining agreements in making furlough decisions,
  • the employee groups that may not be protected from position eliminations,
  • how to determine the order of employee furlough and bumping rights,
  • the process for gaining PDE approval for furloughs,
  • your questions about furloughs and demotions, and much more!
