2011 Federal Employee Furlough Information and Guidance (OPM)

Article Title: The Potential Impact of a Lapse in Appropriations on Federal Employees

Snippet of Article:

"...If the current continuing resolution expires at 12:01 a.m. on April 9, 2011 without passage of an FY 2011 appropriations bill or a further continuing resolution, Federal departments and agencies will be required to execute contingency plans for a lapse in appropriations (more commonly referred to as a "shutdown"). These contingency plans detail which agency activities are allowed by law to continue to operate, and which activities must stop. Employees whose salaries are funded through annual appropriations will not be able to work and will be furloughed, unless their duties qualify under the law as "excepted" to continue to work during periods of lapsed appropriations. During a shutdown, non-excepted employees are not permitted to work as unpaid volunteers for the government. Any paid leave (annual, sick, court, etc.) approved for use during the furlough period must be cancelled. An excepted employee who is absent from duty during the shutdown must be furloughed during such an absence. ..."

  1. I truyly cannot believe the infantile behavior of our government, I realize this is an accepted course of action for Congress to take as they have in the past to cause the shutdown of the federal government, but who is affected, not them. Congress and the President are not affected by the furloughs but the hard working federal employees who actually break a sweat to care for their families are, and now they won't even receive back pay?! This country is supported on the backs of the people they are about to screw over because they are throwing a fit like my two year old and refuse to concede or compromise, well I refuse to vote for you! How are you representing the people when your agenda's overshadow their basic human needs. Once again the elite thrive and stomp on the rapidly increasing impoverished foundation. As my granny would say, for-shame!
