Hiring Freeze Update

Posted by Frank Augustosky on 08/11/20

On the 08/10/2020 board telecom last evening a question was asked of Bruce Nicholson regarding the hiring freeze that was put in place last Friday.   NOTE: The letter from Isaac Cronkhite regarding the hiring freeze is attached.

Bruce called me this morning to clarify the information in the letter about selections being made before August 15th.    What Bruce told me is that the selection must be made and all of the necessary paperwork filed by this Friday, August 14; however, the effective date for the selection can be at a later date down the road.   It could be up to two, or three, pay periods later if you so choose.

So, if you have someone in the process, or if you know of someone in the process you will want to get to work on it.   This also may be valuable information to share with your managers if you have the opportunity.
