The state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs says its employees won’t take off on the five remaining furlough days scheduled for the rest of the fiscal year.
The department said Friday the decision reflects an agreement reached between the state and the Hawaii Government Employees’ Association allowing furloughs to be discontinued for positions completely paid for by special funds.
The department says special funds cover all of its positions.
Employees are due to work on the following Fridays when other state workers will be taking furlough days: April 29, May 6, May 20, June 17 and June 24. They also reported to work as normal today.
