Federal employees will still have to report to work for about four hours Tuesday even if the government shuts down.

Federal agencies have told employees that the only work they can do must be related to the shutdown.

Shutdown tasks include changing voicemail messages, posting an out-of-office message on email, securing work stations and documents and completing time cards. Once they head home, furloughed employees are under strict orders not to do any work. That means no checking emails on Blackberries or smart phones.

Office managers are encouraging workers to leave government-issued equipment in a secure place in the office.

If a shutdown continues, all employees can expect to be paid on schedule on Oct. 15, 2013 for hours worked from Sept. 22 through Sept. 30.
