Federal offices open, but leave allowed

By Ed O'Keefe

This post has been updated.

Federal government offices in Washington are open, but employees who must leave because of the inclement weather may do so, the Office of Personnel Management says.

Employees in the Washington area have the option of leaving early with unscheduled leave or the option of going home and teleworking, OPM said in a statement.

Nonessential workers must notify their supervisors of the decision. Employees who need to leave may:

-- Use annual leave, earned compensatory time off, earned credit hours, or leave without pay; or

-- As permitted by their agency's policies, procedures, and collective bargaining agreements, telework from home if the employee has a telework agreement in place that is approved for unscheduled telework.
