Federal government offices in the D.C. region remain open today but unscheduled leave and unscheduled telework are in effect due to light snow in the forecast.
According to OPM’s website, non-emergency employees need to notify their supervisors of their intention to use unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.
Eligible employees may:
Use annual leave, earned compensatory time off, earned credit hours, or leave without pay; or
As permitted by their agency’s policies, procedures, and collective bargaining agreements, telework from home on a non-telework day, if the employee has a telework agreement in place that is approved for unscheduled telework.
Employees scheduled to telework on the day of the announcement are expected to begin telework on time or request unscheduled leave.
