The U.S. Navy will delay sending furlough notices to civilian workers until further notice because the Pentagon has not made final decisions on a furlough policy, Federal Times reports.

Stephen Losey writes the Navy originally planned to send the notices May 6 with June 5 set as the earliest start date of the furloughs as the branch is required to give employees 30 days notice before they go on unpaid leave.

A spokesperson told Federal Times the Navy expects to furlough workers for up to 14 days during the rest of fiscal year 2013.

In April, the Navy sent an internal memo to employees detailing which employees would be exempt from the furloughs and which areas the Navy would target for cuts under sequestration.
