Déjà Vu: Implications of a Government Shutdown on Federal Contractors

  • February 7, 2018

For the second time in a month, for lack of agreement on funding the government long-term, we face the specter of a government shutdown.

The government shutdown that began on January 20, 2018, lasted three days. Congress ended that shutdown after voting on a stopgap measure to fund the government until February 8, 2018. As that date draws near, and Congress has not agreed on a spending bill to keep the government open, the threat of another government shutdown looms.

Employers should be prepared in the event no budget is agreed on by the deadline and the government shuts down. See our article, Implications of a Government Shutdown on Federal Contractors, on the employment and labor law concerns that a government shutdown raises.
