Defense Department delays civilian furloughs for two weeks
The Department of Defense announced today that planned civilian furloughs due to budget cuts will be delayed by about two weeks.
The delay will allow the Pentagon to analyze the impact of a continuing budget resolution making its way through Congress, according to a statement from Pentagon Press Secretary George Little.
“We believe the delay is a responsible step to take in order to assure our civilian employees that we do not take lightly the prospect of furloughs and the resulting decrease in employee pay,” said Little.
“We have not made any decisions on whether or not the total number of planned furlough days for fiscal 2013 will change as a result of this delay.”
