Pandemic FAQ

Must agencies request approval from OPM prior to establishing a compressed work schedule or flexible work schedule to deal with a pandemic influenza?
No. Agencies do not need OPM approval to establish flexible or compressed work schedules authorized by 5 U.S.C. 6122 and/or 6127. We encourage agencies to prepare for all emergency situations and address the use of compressed or flexible work schedules in their contingency plans.
