Nate Christensen Outlines DoD Civilian Leave Policy for Shutdown

PentagonNavy Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen has said furloughed civilian staff who are called back to work during the shutdown may use sick or annual leave under federal law, the American Forces Press Service reported Tuesday.

Jim Garamone writes Christensen, a Pentagon spokesman, told AFPS Tuesday this does not apply to employees placed in a nonpay, nonduty status.

The Pay Our Military Act allows excepted workers to collect their full two-week salaries on Oct. 11, according to the report.

Garamone reports furloughed staff will get 48 hours of compensation for the payroll period up to and including Sept. 30.

Retroactive pay for employees affected by the shutdown furlough will be given once the government approves an appropriations bill or a continuing resolution.
