USMS Employees - Government Shutdown Resources

This guidance/information can be used as needed by U.S. Marshals Service employees who may be impacted financially by the current shutdown furlough.

  • Certifying and Validating T&As Guidance (01/27/19)
  • Human Resources Division Return to Work Guidance (01/26/19)
  • Return to Work Guidance (01/25/19) 

    As you may be aware, the press is reporting that a budget agreement has been reached which will reopen the government for three weeks.  When the agreement is signed by the President, we will send via email, Return to Work Notices to all United States Marshals Service (USMS) employees and post the same notice on the Internet.  Please monitor your email for receipt of that notice as it could be over the weekend.  Assuming the Continuing Resolution (CR) is signed, you are to return to work on your next scheduled work day.  For most of us, that will likely be Monday, January 28th.  Note, however, that if the CR is signed tonight, some could be returning to work on Saturday, January 26th.  The USMS has determined that your first day of work can be an unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework day if you need to make any personal arrangements in order to return.  Please contact your supervisor to coordinate.  Please be aware that there is likely to be a short turnaround time on processing timecards.  We are awaiting instructions but expect the guidance will be to process at least one pay period as of Monday, January 28th.
