LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Government employees locally are being told to come into work only for shutdown duties.
Many of the Census Bureau's 1500 employees in Jeffersonville, Ind. are being furloughed starting Tuesday. Employees received a letter Tuesday morning outlining what the shutdown means for them.
They are expected to call a status line every day to find out when they'll come back to work. Workers say they'll receive back pay once the government is up and running.
Jeremy Lannan, a Census Bureau employee and union official, said, "As of 12 noon today we were not to return to work until we receive further notification. It just went over parameters, we're not to use census web mail outside of work or use the system because the system, our email system will be shut down. So employees will have no way of any type of communication with the agency."
Federal workers considered non-essential have about four hours to get their offices in order, and then they'll have to go home.
Census Bureau employees say they'll be protesting from noon to 4 p.m. in front of their building.
