Federal offices open Tuesday

Davidson

The Office of Personnel Management forecast for Tuesday’s workday in federal offices is the same as Monday’s:

“Federal agencies in the Washington, D.C. area are open and employees have the option for unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.”

Friday’s storm in the Washington area has caused electrical and transportation problems for some residents and businesses, but the federal government will continue to operate.

The full text of the OPM announcement, released Monday afternoon says:

“Federal agencies in the Washington, DC, area are OPEN and employees have the OPTION for UNSCHEDULED LEAVE OR UNSCHEDULED TELEWORK.

“Non-Emergency Employees must notify their supervisor of their intent to use unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework (if telework-ready). Non-emergency employees have the option to

(1)    use earned annual leave, compensatory time off, credit hours, or sick leave, as appropriate;

(2)    use leave without pay; or

(3)    request to use their flexible work schedule day off or rearrange their work hours under flexible work schedules.

“Telework-Ready Employees who are regularly scheduled to perform telework or who notify their supervisors of their intention to perform unscheduled telework must be prepared to telework for the entire workday, or take unscheduled leave, or a combination of both, for the entire workday in accordance with their agency’s policies and procedures, subject to any applicable collective bargaining requirements.

“Emergency Employees are expected to report to their worksites on time unless otherwise directed by their agencies.”
