With Winter Approaching, OPM Reminds Agencies of Closure and Leave Policies - November 13, 2019
By Erich Wagner, Government Executive
The Office of Personnel Management last week sent a reminder to federal agencies of policies for dealing with major weather events, as winter approaches.
In a memo to agency heads, OPM Director Dale Cabaniss said that although there are not any new changes to how agencies should handle weather-related office closures, she wanted to reiterate the policy as it is still relatively new. OPM first issued the current procedures in 2018 as part of its implementation of the 2016 Administrative Leave Act.
