Feds get early dismissal on Wednesday
Some federal workers will get to take an early dismissal on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday if it's granted by their agency bosses, the Office of Personnel Management announced this afternoon.
The early pass is appropriate only for nonessential executive branch employees scheduled to work on Wednesday.
In a statement, OPM Director John Berry cited President Obama's Thanksgiving message, which asks Americans to lend a hand to needier family, friends and neighbors during the holiday.
"I ask all Federal employees to reflect on the president’s message and renew their commitment to serving their communities," Berry said.
Despite Wednesday's early dismissal and Thursday's holiday, Friday is a normal work day for federal employees -- unless they take a vacation day.
