OMB director Mick Mulvaney said this morning that the shutdown may extend into the new year and discussed some of the pay implications for federal employees.
Are furloughs from shutdowns an expected job hazard of being a federal employee? One Congressman recently said it’s what federal workers “sign up for.”
Legislation has been introduced in the House to guarantee back pay to federal employees who would be furloughed in the event of a shutdown.
OMB has issued special instructions on pay and leave for agencies and employees who would be impacted by a partial government shutdown.
