Federal News Network: Most federal employees who are excused from work on Wednesday to honor the passing of President George H.W. Bush will continue to get paid with no interruptions.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order over the weekend, which declared Wednesday, Dec. 5 as a “national day of mourning for President George H.W. Bush” and an observable holiday.
It’s for this reason that federal employees generally shouldn’t see any difference in their pay, unless they’re activated to work for national security and safety reasons or participate in state funeral services.
