Non-emergency employees must notify their supervisor of their intent to use unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework, if telework-ready.
In accordance with their agency’s policies and procedures, subject to any applicable collective bargaining requirements, non-emergency employees have the option to use:
Earned annual leave, compensatory time off, credit hours, or sick leave, as appropriate;
Leave without pay;
Their alternative work schedule (AWS) day off or rearrange their work hours under flexible work schedules; or
Unscheduled telework (if telework-ready).
Telework-ready employees who are regularly scheduled to perform telework or who notify their supervisor of their intention to perform unscheduled telework must be prepared to telework for the entire workday, or take unscheduled leave, or a combination of both, for the entire workday in accordance with their agency’s policies and procedures, subject to any applicable collective bargaining requirements.
Emergency employees are expected to report to their worksites on time unless otherwise directed by their agencies.
