Civilian furloughs delayed

Posted: Updated:
Fort Gordon, GA (WFXG) -

The Department of Defense announced today that civilian furloughs will not be announced for another couple of weeks.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT:

"The Department of Defense has decided to delay the issuance of civilian employee furlough notices for approximately two weeks. This delay will allow the department to carefully analyze the impact of pending continuing resolution legislation on the department's resources. We have not made any decisions on whether or not the total number of planned furlough days for fiscal 2013 will change as a result of this delay.

We believe the delay is a responsible step to take in order to assure our civilian employees that we do not take lightly the prospect of furloughs and the resulting decrease in employee pay."

FOX54 will continue to follow this story and will have the latest on any cuts in our area as we are notified.
