Pentagon Furlough Appeal Processing Set to Start After Labor Day

OfficeThe Merit Systems Protection Board expects to begin processing appeals submitted by furloughed Pentagon workers shortly after Labor Day, GovExec reported Thursday.

Kellie Lunney writes the agency has docketed half of more than 30,000 sequester-related furlough appeals to date and intends to encode all claims in its system before starting the adjudication process.

DoD has reduced the number of unpaid leave for 650,000 civilian workers to six days from the previously anticipated 22 days in recent months.

The agency told GovExec it wants to gain “a better understanding of the claims being raised, the work locations of the appellants, the MSPB offices in which the appeals have been filed, and whether or not the appellants are represented.”
