An agency may not hold an employee accountable for
work that does not get done because of an absence for which the employee
is on any type of approved leave. If there is a specific performance
standard for the appraisal year, it may be prorated for the amount of
time the employee was at work.
The issue of veterans seeking medical treatment is specifically
addressed in the performance management regulations in 430 of title 5,
Code of Federal Regulations: "...The rating of record or performance
rating of a disabled veteran shall not be lowered because the veteran
has been absent from work to seek medical treatment as provided in
Executive Order 5396."
