Clark County Commissioners approved a voluntary separation program during its Tuesday meeting.

Employees of Clark County, Water Reclamation District and University Medical Center who have 5 years of service will be able to apply for the program through June 30.

If the employee is approved, they will receive a full week of pay for every 2 years of employment up to 15 weeks of compensation.

The employee will also be eligible for 2 years of health insurance coverage.


Employees who participate in the program will not be eligible for rehire for 3 years.

Clark County’s budget has been severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting closures.


The commission also voted a voluntary furlough program.
