Will agencies release employees from work to lessen the probability of significant numbers of employees catching the flu?
During a pandemic health crisis, heads of agencies will strive to protect the health of employees while ensuring the Federal Government’s work is accomplished. Agencies may use a number of alternative work arrangements to promote the “social distancing” of employees. An agency may authorize evacuation payments and require employees to work from home during a pandemic health crisis. In addition, an agency may require employees with approved telework agreements to telework from home.
