Army Issues Guidelines for Furloughed Employees that Seek Other Jobs

ArmyChopperThe Army has informed civilian employees they must inform management three days ahead of negotiating with outside employers for jobs during periods of furlough, the Washington Post reports.

Eric Yoder writes the Army told employees in a memo that employees are disqualified from participating in matters that are material to the financial interests of outside employers once they pursue other jobs.

Employees must also disqualify themselves from those matters regardless of compensation from the company, according to the report.

Yoder reports the Office of Government Ethics and Office of Personnel Management have sent similar warnings to employees facing furlough days starting the week of July 8.
