| Government Shutdown Information
Due to a lapse in funding, employees occupying a position not excepted from the furlough will be required to report to their place of work to effect an orderly shutdown of work.
All scheduled leave for "Excepted" employees is cancelled. Furlough Eligible employees will be advised of their status in writing and that they will be required to report to their workspace and engage in an orderly shutdown.
The estimated time that each employee should need is no more than 4 hours to accomplish an orderly shutdown, with rare exceptions. During this time, all but full-time, furlough-excepted employees will receive a notice of decision to furlough in the form of a letter. The notice of decision will inform employees to cease regular work activities. Employees being furloughed also will be provided shutdown instructions advising them to engage only in shutdown activities.
