Feds learn furlough status as shutdown looms

Federal employees began learning Friday whether they'll be forced to stay home if the government shuts down next week. Supervisors were tasked with informally telling employees today whether they are classified as "essential" or "nonessential," according to several federal-employee unions briefed by the Obama administration. Congress is prepared to work through the weekend, but the clock is ticking down for lawmakers to agree on a funding bill keeping the lights on at agencies beyond Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year.

Union wants rewrite of phased-retirement rules

The National Treasury Employees Union supports the general idea of phased retirement but has taken issue with some of the specifics set out by the Office of Personnel Management in its draft regulations. NTEU President Colleen Kelley says the rules, in their current form, require would-be phased retirees to have 20 years of experience, which could limit the number of employee eligible for the program. NTEU is also concerned about the lack of an appeals process for feds deemed ineligible for the option.

IRS furloughs costing U.S. a bundle

If somebody said they could save you nearly $1,800 but that it would cost you $61,000, you probably wouldn't take the deal, right? Unfortunately, the White House and Congress have signed off on it in the form of furloughs, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.

Furloughing the money-makers

If somebody guaranteed you $9 for every dollar you invested, would you take the deal? Most people would, but politicians who designed the sequestration process to save money may find it is also a costly exercise, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
