  • Government shutdown means you go home if you are not essential AND you dont get paid.

    Congress may retroactively pay after if they see fit.

    Essential employess get to work without pay that will be back paid after shutdown ends.

    Last shutdown I had a fellow officer hit by a car and another shoot the driver ALL FOR FREE.

    • You don't get paid they send you home and when they eventually call you back you get back pay when the government starts up again. I was at the border patrol academy in 2013. In the academy you are not essential you ARE sent home. At the stroke of midnight they said pack your stuff you are all going home and we only had a month left. They didn't even know if we'd ever be called back to the academy or would have a job to be called back to there was cancellation talk. We all left the next day and we were called back to the academy a month later. For that month we were not getting paid just sitting at home. I was there. I lived it. It was a nightmare. Going back into my hole bye bye.

      • Lucky you were paid. That took an act of congress.

        Generally if you arent essential you dont get back pay.

          Yes, pay stops and you will get back pay more than likely. While in the academy and if the G shuts down, YOU GO HOME, not to an office. Sure it sucks, but you just have to roll the dice.

                  That's pretty good timing, I think you're the first Oct 15 to get med clearance. Did you have to do any follow ups?

              • No medical follow-up and I "should" have clearance reciprocity, so I'm attempting to be patient by filling the wait time with my current job.

                • Seems like they're doing clearance for those with reciprocity first. I think everyone from Oct 15 who has received it has been that way.

                    Anyone know if they are doing that with just clearances from within DOJ/other 1811 agencies or are they accepting DoD? I have heard some don't put too much weight in DoD clearances.

                      My DHS clearance was accepted for my position with ATF but I did not officially receive my TS until a full year after I came on with the agency.

                      I'm told that it can depend.

                  • Anyone processing out of New York?
