Shenethia Manuel, the director of Human Resources at Missouri S&T, gave a series of presentations to address employee concerns about the possibility of furloughs and layoffs being used to help ease the university's financial woes Wednesday.
"I do not know of any plans for furloughs or layoffs," Manuel told about 30 university employees at the Havener Center. The presentation was in response to what she called anxiety over the decisions by the University of Missouri System Board of Curators on Friday. "From Forsee's letter, people are making assumptions," Manuel said, referring to a letter Forsee sent to the university community about the changes. During her presentation, Manuel, who is in her first year as director did not rule out the possibility of furloughs being used, reiterating several times that furloughs would be a last resort. Manuel's statements Wednesday were in contention with an S&T employee's claim that the day before, Manuel told employees that furloughs were likely to happen. The employee, who did not wish to be identified for fear of retribution, said on Tuesday, a meeting had taken place where Manuel said the amount of time employees would be furloughed was being discussed. During the presentation, Manuel also discussed the changes in the employees' overtime pay and benefits. S&T plans to change its overtime payment. Beginning in April, the university will no longer pay overtime for hourly employees who take time off during the week and come in on the weekend. The change is currently for non-union employees, and the university plans to have discussions with union representatives in April. So, if an employee takes Monday off and comes in on Saturday they would not be paid overtime for the Saturday. Manuel also discussed changes to retirement benefits. Employees will now pay 1 percent on earnings up to $50,000 and 2 percent on earnings above that. "This is something new, and it is a little scary," Manuel said. She added, however, that university will continue to contribute; that benefits were not going to change and that the fund was to stabilize the losses the retirement fund because of the financial crisis.
