Washington area federal government offices are closed for the second straight day because of superstorm Sandy.
But as Federal Diary columnist Joe Davidson noted, being off site doesn’t mean a government employee is off duty if they have teleworking status.As the closing announcement notes:
If you have telework status or not, we’d like to hear from you for our Question of the Week:
It’s times like these when the issue of teleworking is front and center. Are you someone eligible for teleworking but have not been approved? If you have been approved — and have electrical power — is it fair that you may be required to work or take annual leave while others essentially have a day off?

We might include your response on the Federal Worker Page of The Washington Post print edition on Friday. Leave your comments below.
