Could someone help me to understand how the deadline on 12/11 will impact DoD if a government budget isn’t approved? Will DoD civilians and contractors get furloughed? I’m new to this world and I’m getting confused by different reports.

"Non-essential" civilians would be furloughed and, if there isn't specific cross-FY funding in place, contracts will also get a stop-work order. Big Daddy D will take care of you if that's the case, though you'll take a hit to util if you go on the bench.


At Deloitte, you'll be fine. There might be a stop work but you'll still get paid


If you work in defense or IC it’s business as usual.


Don’t stress out. Be thankful you work for a large, solid firm that knows how to navigate these little speed bumps. It’s part of life in DC.
