Furlough days and budget changes


Q. My office is requiring four furlough days in response to sequestration with the option to take all four days at once by August. If I do so, and our budget suddenly changes positively (unexpected retirements, transfers, etc.) prior to those days, would I still be required to take these days solely on being fair to other employees who have already taken their days?

A. Probably, and for the very reason you cited.
