2-hour delay, unscheduled leave for federal workers Tuesday
Federal employees in the Washington may report for work two hours later than they would normally arrive Tuesday because of icy conditions across the region.
Workers also have the option to take unscheduled leave or to telework, the Office of Personnel Management said Tuesday.
Icy road conditions in the District and to the north and west are not expected to improve until later in the morning, according to The Post's Capital Weather Gang. Several area school districts are also closed or delayed Tuesday.
OPM revamped the federal leave policy in December to accommodate 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.
The government most recently allowed feds to leave early on Dec. 16, when snow fell across the area and several school districts shut down.
