EEOC Calls Off Second Round of Furloughs

eeocThe Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will not subject its workers to second round of furlough days, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Shefali Kapadia writes the agency reached its decision after a two-week discussion period.

Jacqueline Berrien, EEOC chair, said in a memo obtained by the station that a second phase of furloughs would not be required to help the agency reach its targeted savings for fiscal year 2013.

Phase one of furloughs occurred between April 22 and July 2 with five days of unpaid leave for each employee, according to the report.

A second phase would have furloughed each worker an additional three days.
