COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF MANAGEMENT IN 2013 FURLOUGH CASES - May 4, 2017
Management Upheld on Furlough Decision
Federal Manager's Daily Report, Fedweek
A federal appeals court has issued the latest in a string of decisions upholding management’s furlough decisions, in a case involving the 2013 sequestration furloughs but that could apply as well to similar situations ahead due to tight budgets.
The case involved a six-day save-money furlough imposed on a group of employees at a DoD working capital fund entity. Such units are self-supporting on fees and services they charge to customers–often other units within the same parent agency or in a different agency–and do not receive appropriations from Congress.
