  • President Freezes Federal Hiring

    I was wondering if this has an effect on Federal Law Enforcement. I thought I read somewhere military and public safety were exempt from the freeze.

    And public health

      I was worried about this as well. But you are correct; military, law enforcement and public health are exempted.

        There are no exemptions that I see? Well this stop promotions? I'm already an employee and received a bp-a1097 form today from another duty station (basically tentatively selected) Am I gonna be frozen out? That's a 15k $ raise I'm gonna be missing if so...

          "The head of any executive department or agency may exempt from the hiring freeze any positions that it deems necessary to meet national security or public safety responsibilities. In addition, the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) may grant exemptions from this freeze where those exemptions are otherwise necessary."

            That covers a lot of different jobs, especially if it's up to the discretion of the agency. I wouldn't really worry about this, especially since President Trump has talked about tripling the size of ICE/HSI. It won't be anywhere near as damaging as the sequester was.

              Could be wrong, but I envision another one of those Southwest border hiring initiatives like ATF did years back.

                I think DOJ, and DHS agencies are safe and also DSS. I think its up in the air for IGs as to how this plays out as the public safety exemption isnt as clear cut for white collar fraud in my opinion.

                  I almost **** myself when I first heard about it. I am going through backgrounds for a 0083 job with the Marine Corps so I should be okay...I hope.
                  Not all men can be U.S. Marines that is why there is the Army, Navy and Air Force.

                        I think the reason as to why Mr. Trump did this, is to decrease the amount of homeless veterans. I think it's freaking awesome. Granted, a lot of recent grads might be ****ed, depending on if they're coming out of college or not. We shall see I guess.

                              The marine unit and the air unit are on hold now, but all the task forces are still going strong. The lion and and the panda task force are really busy.
