Q. I am an active-duty E-9 with a retirement date of July 1. With terminal leave and permissive temporary duty, I will be leaving the service in April. Am I eligible to start work in April if selected for a GS position? Are there any restrictions to going to work for a government contractor while on terminal leave?
A. Yes, you can go to work as a civilian government employee during your period of terminal leave. I don’t know if that’s true if you go to work for someone else. You’ll have to check with your personnel office.
