OMB asks agencies to let as many employees telework as possible

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread nationwide and globally, the federal Office of Management and Budget asked agencies in the Washington, D.C. area to make telework available for as many employees as possible in the Washington, D.C. area. Specifically, agencies were encouraged to “offer maximum telework flexibilities to all current telework eligible employees” and “use all existing authorities to offer telework to additional employees, to the extent their work could be telework enabled.” For employees ineligible to telework, OMB asked agency heads to offer weather and safety leave or the equivalent, particularly for employees at higher risk of serious complications from COVID-19. Dave Nyczepir has the details from the memo.
