Shutdown Furloughs Put Sequester Furlough Appeals on Pause

1 min read


OfficeThe partial government shutdown has delayed the processing of appeals filed by employees who were furloughed in the spring and summer due to sequestration, GovExec reported Wednesday.

Kellie Lunney writes the Merit Systems Protection Board was forced to cease operations and furlough most of its workers during the shutdown.

MSPB received 32,000 sequester-related furlough claims during the last fiscal year and Defense Department civilian staff account for 99 percent of those appeals.

The board is working to consolidate appeals from the Pentagon workforce in an effort to expedite the adjudication process, GovExec reports.
