Difference between furlough and layoff

The main difference between a furlough and a layoff is that a furlough allows workers to return to their jobs. Some layoffs are temporary, and will recall workers to the job, but in cases where management decides the employees will not be recalled, the layoff becomes permanent.
It appears that each state has rules regarding furloughs. So, it is possible that some states will provide compensation and others will not. Each person will need to look into this to determine if they can be compensated during this minor government work stoppage.
