Federal leave for severe weather revamped
With temperatures plummeting and flurries spotted across the Washington area in recent days, the Obama administration is mandating that the government allow more federal employees to telework during severe weather.
The revamping of the federal leave policy aims to accommodate the thousands of federal employees in the Washington area who must report for work regardless of the weather. The changes account for a new federal law requiring the wider use of teleworking.
Officials with the Office of Personnel Management, the National Weather Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and regional and state government offices announced the changes Wednesday morning.
