Partial-Shutdown Layoff FAQ
On May 18, 2015 Governor Walker sent a letter to State employees regarding the fiscal year 2016 budget transmitted to his Office by the Legislature and his subsequent decision to veto unfunded items. If the Legislature not pass a budget, which becomes law prior to July 1, 2015, funding will solely be available for critical positions of life, health, and safety.
In early June, State employees will receive notice of the partial-government shutdown and layoff.
To ensure timely receipt of a recall notice, all employees must subscribe to receive email and/or text updates (please use a personal email address, not your state email, as state email may be suspended during your layoff).

In addition, we have set up a phone number to call to retrieve a recorded message regarding the partial-shutdown. Please call 907-465-4411 or 844-465-4688 (toll free in-state).
In order to address questions employees may have as we move forward, the Division of Personnel and Labor Relations has created a FAQ. We want this document to give you accurate, up-to-date information.
We will make every attempt to answer your questions. Please start with the FAQ and if you do not see the answer to your question, contact your department Human Resource staff or email Dana Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank-you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented event.
