Most of the Washington, D.C., region is under a dangerous weather alert, which has forced the closure of all federal offices.
The Office of Personnel Management announced its decision this morning to delay the opening of federal offices as well as let employees take unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.
The Office of Personnel Management says it’s monitoring the weather situation for Washington, D.C. federal offices.
With a dusting of snow on the ground Thursday morning, OPM issued a 2-hour delay for metro Washington, which has about 14 percent of the total civilian federal workforce.
As winter storm Grayson is expected hit parts of the Florida and the Southeast seaboard early Thursday morning, federal agencies along the East Coast are preparing for an impact on Thursday’s commute.
The Office of Personnel Management announced on its website that federal offices in the D.C. area are open on Wednesday.
With the forecast calling for snow Thursday evening into Friday morning’s commute, federal employees should revisit their agency’s telework policies and contingency plans to prepare for the first weather event of the year. OPM will update its website and social media channels with any changes to the government operating status.
OPM made the right call this week when Metrorail was closed down for the day. Certainly not the popular call, but the one that was the right business decision for the taxpayers.
