Early Dismissal for Federal Workers on Friday
The Federal Government is already operating on Friday morning with an unscheduled leave policy, but also plans to dismiss workers four hours early.
That means employees who report for work today will be dismissed four hours earlier than their normal departure time.
The Office of Personnel Management said it will continue to monitor weather conditions closely and may reassess the early dismissal if the forecast warrants a change.
This is the first early dismissal of the Obama administration and the second unscheduled leave day of the calendar year. The federal government loses roughly $100 million in productivity and opportunity costs each time it closes D.C.-area offices, according to OPM Director John Berry.
