Survey: Do You Know If You’d Be Furloughed During a Shutdown?

Steve Cukrov/

The last time the full government reached the brink of a shutdown – in April 2011 – many federal employees were left in the dark until the last minute about whether they would be subject to furloughs or expected to show up at work. This time around, the Obama administration has assured unions that employees will know their fate by the end of the day on Friday, Sept. 27. That doesn’t leave a lot of time, with the shutdown scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Oct. 1. But it does provide a concrete deadline. Has your agency met this deadline? Take our survey below to let us know.
