1 min read

EmptyOfficeFEMAThe National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will furlough its employees for four days starting in July as the agency could not offset automatic cuts under sequestration through a hiring freeze.

Furloughs are currently scheduled for July 5, July 19, Aug. 5 and Aug. 30, Federal News Radio reports.

Kathryn Sullivan, acting NOAA administrator, announced the plans to employees in an email obtained by the station, where she said the agency plans to close a majority of its offices on four specific days.

NOAA is discussing its plans with labor unions representing some of the agency’s employees, Sullivan said, according to the report.

Ciaran Clayton, NOAA director of communications, told the station the National Weather Service will be impacted by the furloughs.
