    "A furlough is a temporary layoff, an involuntary leave, or another modification of normal working hours without pay for a specified duration." In this case, 3 to 8 weeks. Probably more.

    When you say someone is "laid off" it is taken to mean that they are gone and not coming back. Their position was eliminated. It's kind of like being fired only instead of losing your job for negligence you're losing your job because it no longer exists and no one will be replacing you. That's not what is happening at the NCAA. No one is permanently losing their jobs and they are not eliminating any positions.

    I got laid off six months after graduating college. I felt I had reached a point in my career that most don’t reach at such an early age.
