Federal Hiring Freeze
On January 23, 2017, President Donald J. Trump issued a memorandum addressed to “Heads of Executive Department and Agencies” prohibiting them from hiring any new employees for 90 days.
Clarification regarding the coverage of this President Trump memorandum has now been issued jointly by the U.S. Office of Management & Budget and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. The above agencies clearly state that one of the “exemptions to the Federal civilian hiring freeze” is “hiring by the U.S. Postal Service.”
In other words, the hiring freeze has NO impact on hiring or related issues at the U.S. Postal Service.
