Unscheduled Leave for Federal Government on Wednesday

By Ed O'Keefe

Federal offices in the Washington area are operating under an unscheduled leave policy on Wednesday as a snowstorm dumped anywhere between 2 and 8 inches across the region overnight.

The policy means federal workers in the D.C. area who cannot report for work can request unscheduled time off for the entire workday. Workers must notify their supervisor of their decision. Emergency employees must report regardless of the weather.

(Incidentally, The Post's Capital Weather Gang predicted a 50-50 chance of closure/delay with their Tuesday FedCast.)
