Layoffs and Downsizing the State's workforce Source: News media reports On Thursday, September 23, 2010, Governor Paterson announced that in order to help solve the State's current financial crisis it will be necessary to layoff some 2,000 State employees. Indicating that the proposed downsizing of the State's work force will begin in mid-November, the Governor said that a memorandum is being sent to the heads of State Departments and Agencies, signed jointly by Robert Megna, the State's Budget Director and Mark Leinung, the Acting Director of State Operations, notifying them of the necessary reductions.* The memorandum indicated that specific targets for staff reductions on an agency-by-agency basis would be distributed. The actual number of incumbents to be laid off in a particular department or agency, however, could be reduced by its not filling vacancies resulting from retirements, resignations and other forms of "attrition" in its work force. * The September 23, 2010 memorandum signed by Megna and Leinung, in pertinent part, states: The ongoing economic and fiscal problems facing the State will require further cost saving actions. Despite our best efforts the State is falling short of its financial plan targets. The alternatives available to ensure we remain on a stable fiscal course are limited. Accordingly, we will need to take additional actions by the end of 2010 that will result in a reduction in the workforce by 2000 employees. You will be given the discretion to use layoffs as a part of this reduction in workforce…. Your budget examination unit will contact you with revised targets, and with further details on the process for submitting your proposed reductions. ============================================ For information about layoff procedures involving employees in the public service in New York State please click here: http://nylayoff.blogspot.com/ ============================================ .
