Furloughed Federal Workers And Unemployment Benefits

Federal workers who have been furloughed are entitled to file for unemployment benefits. Claims should be filed where you worked, not where you live. An SF 50 is generally required to prove a termination; however, agencies are not providing SF 50s for the shutdown so furloughed workers should be sure to bring pay stubs and other evidence that they are out of work. If, as last time, the government later votes to compensate for the back pay then states may seek to recoup the benefits paid.

The employment lawyers are Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., represent federal employees in all aspects of their employment including discipline, EEO and security clearance issues.
