Furloughs – OLCC employees take up to 14 unpaid days off

The current recession has reduced state revenues, and has forced the Legislature to make deep cuts in agency budgets. Coping with reductions in revenues, the state of Oregon has mandated that OLCC employees (along with other agencies) take as many as 14 unpaid furlough days during the biennium.

As a result, we may be short-staffed at times and you may not always be able to reach someone. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. As an agency, we will strive to provide the best customer service we can under the circumstances and appreciate your patience during this time. We look forward to restoration of a full work schedule for all state employees when the economy improves.
