State Health Department To Begin Furloughing Workers

Posted: Updated:

Budget issues mean the Oklahoma State Department of Health will begin furloughing workers this week. 

The furloughs affect both county and central office employees.

The Department also announced last week it will also be eliminating approximately 250 positions due to a lack of funding. However, that is separate to the ?state's budget problems and stems from what they say is unexplained internal cash flow issues.
