Sample Communication to Furloughed Employees

  • Topics

Dear COSA Employee,

The COVID-19 pandemic is having significant impacts on the economy resulting in great economic uncertainty. As such, it is also greatly impacting our current City Budget. One of the areas most impacted is the Hotel Occupancy Tax Fund (HOT Fund) from which your position is funded. Substantially all events at the Convention Center of Alamodome over the next several months have been canceled or postponed and hotels are expected to remain largely vacant. With revenue in the HOT Fund so greatly impacted coupled with the significant economic uncertainty, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily furlough you. While on furlough, you will remain an employee of the City and will continue to participate in the City's healthcare plan.
