All faculty and staff will continue to be paid through Friday, April 17. After April 17, approximately 250 employees will be placed on temporary unpaid furlough until the university’s normal operations resume and they can return to their roles on campus.
Out of respect for the dignity of each individual, all furloughed employees will retain their current medical, dental and vision insurance, and Marquette will pay both the employer and employee portions of their insurance premiums during the temporary furloughs. In addition, tuition remission benefits, vacation time and sick leave accruals will continue while employees are temporarily furloughed. Affected employees can utilize their remaining vacation days, if they choose to do so, or may file for state unemployment compensation benefits and federal support immediately.
Temporarily furloughed employees will receive more information beginning Wednesday, April 8. There is no defined end date for the temporary furloughs as of now. It is our intention to return all employees to their roles as soon as regular, sustained work becomes available on campus.
