That's good to know. Wonder how close he is to declaring a national emergency? Also wonder if he would sign a bill to reopen the government after declaring this national emergency?Boom! Back pay!
I guess don't get too excited, it wouldn't be the first time this administration has backtracked on something.
Senate approves back pay for federal workers when shutdown ends
So happy I went ahead and took this leave
So the bills does have a blurb saying if you were an excepted employee you can use leave to be paid for time you took off, soooo no free leave, at least that's how it's written as of now and that's how I (I'm no lawyer) interpret it.Guaranteeing back pay before reopening the gov? If the agencies thought sick leave use skyrocketed before, they're about to see something special.
Hey man, I'm with you but this shutdown was really odd. Any other shutdown if we took leave there were no questions, you got put in as furlough but this time around there was a huge stink to track everything and everyone.Chapter 63 also covers administrative leave so if we were in a furlough status, which we were in if you weren’t at work, it should be considered administrative leave and not taken out of our leave balances.
I think the agency wants to track leave because they may be receiving guidance about potentially taking punitive action against employees; especially, if they can prove their was organized action.Hey man, I'm with you but this shutdown was really odd.

Just seems odd. I would hope that the Union would take up the fight, we should never be divided.
