STATEMENT FROM THE U.S. OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

Work Schedule for Federal Employees in the Washington, D.C. Area for Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Washington, D.C. -- Federal offices in the Washington, D.C. area will open on time Tuesday, June 23.  Workplace flexibilities exist for managers to accommodate employees whose commutes are adversely affected by yesterday's derailment on Metro's Red Line.

Federal managers are encouraged to allow employees with approved telework agreements to work at home.  To the extent possible, managers are encouraged to allow employees on alternate work schedules to reschedule their day off.  Managers are encouraged to allow up to 2 hours of excused absence to account for travel delays.
