Temporary Work Force Reduction
Temporary Work Force Reduction (TWFR) permits agencies to reduce employees' work hours and salaries temporarily or place employees in a non-working status temporarily. Such reductions may be scheduled continuously or intermittently and are limited to no more than 690 hours in a 365-day period. Certain employee benefits are protected during the period on non-working status. Agencies must provide a minimum of two weeks notice to employees before placing them in TWFR.
