We provide Governmentwide leadership on Federal work scheduling policies and programs. We develop and maintain Governmentwide regulations and policies on the administration of work schedules, including the basic 40-hour workweek, holidays, and flexible and compressed work schedules. However, each Federal agency is responsible for administering work scheduling policies and programs for its own employees.
