OPM Encourages Telework and Other Workplace Flexibilities during the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC

On Thursday, March 31 through Friday, April 1, 2016, President Obama will welcome world leaders from more than 50 nations and four international organizations at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC.  The Federal Government in the Washington, DC, area will remain "OPEN" during this period.

To help alleviate traffic congestion and minimize distraction to law enforcement and security officials, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is urging agencies to permit employees to use their workplace flexibility options.  Accordingly, OPM strongly encourages agencies to allow employees to telework to keep the Federal Government operating while helping to minimize traffic congestion and support law enforcement efforts during this event.  Employees may also request to use their alternative work schedule day off, annual leave, leave without pay, previously earned compensatory time off, and/or earned credit hours under a flexible work schedule.
