Yes. Agencies have discretionary authority to grant excused absence to employees who were prevented from returning to work due to unique travel circumstances. However, employees on preapproved leave should continue to be charged leave until the date they were scheduled to return to duty. After such date, employees who are ending their leave must contact their supervisor to request to use additional annual leave, leave without pay, credit hours earned, compensatory time off earned, or excused absence (if the agency's internal policy permit). Telework may also be an option, under internal policy, if the employees have access to the necessary equipment or tools to accomplish their work.
