Frequently Asked Questions Pandemic

[hypothetical] My family was planning to leave for a vacation when my annual leave was canceled because of a pandemic influenza. Can my agency cancel my leave? Will the agency reimburse me for my plane tickets?

An agency may cancel an employee’s scheduled annual leave.  An employee may use annual leave for personal needs, such as vacations, but his or her supervisor has the right to schedule the time at which annual leave may be taken.  An agency has no obligation or authority to reimburse an employee for costs incurred by an employee resulting from the cancellation of his or her leave.
