    Is Furlough back pay is 'paid vacation'?

    If retroactive pay is given for the same time unemployment benefits were issued, then UI money must be paid back. UI payments are significantly lower than full pay.

    I doubt anyone was furloughed long enough to receive unemployment benefits.  My daughter is a DOD civilian employee.  She was sent home for four days then worked without pay for three.  I'm prejudiced of course because she is a single mother who had to keep paying for her childcare spots even when she was in danger of not getting paid.  I think these people deserve their pay for the pain and suffering this lunacy has inflicted on them when all they wanted to do was their jobs.  But, like I freely admit, I'm biased.
