Below is information from the State regarding payment for the shutdown from July 1 through July 3: 

Pay for the shutdown furlough will be issued in a supplemental payroll on payroll date R, which is September 1. Taxes will be deducted as normal, but other deductions were already charged in the prior 9-day pay covering the shutdown period.

Overtime will be recalculated for the period of the shutdown for eligible employees.

Non-essential employees who were placed in no-pay status during the shutdown, will be paid for the furlough time. This will be paid by the state, not charged to benefit time.

Employees who would have been on FMLA, State Family Leave and/or unpaid leave of absence even if the State had not shut down, including unpaid voluntary furloughs, will have time sheet adjusted accordingly to reflect that leave.
