    Essential/Excepted = Employees that don't get free days off. Fairness: Some employees go to work and get paid, others stay home and get paid.

  • So those that were furloughed get paid not to work?
    Radar Tech
    I have to keep coming to work on a "deferred" pay status because my job is essential to the safety of life and property, but those that get sent home are going to be paid in full for doing nothing? How is that fair? During the "save money" furloughs, we essential excepted service employees had to take our furloughs too, right along with the non-essential employees. Are we going to get back pay for that?
