SOME AGENCIES, INCLUDING THE STATE DEPARTMENT, TO EXTEND THE HIRING FREEZE - April 17, 2017
Some Agencies Are Extending the Hiring Freeze Trump Just Ended
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
The White House ended its governmentwide federal hiring freeze earlier this week, but some agencies said they would continue the freeze, at least for some period of time.
The State Department announced Thursday that Secretary Rex Tillerson had extended the moratorium until it develops a plan to restructure itself. The Broadcasting Board of Governors is also declining to hire until at least May 1, its CEO and Director John Lansing wrote in an email to employees obtained by Government Executive.
