The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has closed Federal offices in the Washington D.C. metro area on Wednesday due to inclement weather. OPM made the announcement Tuesday night in anticipation of the Wednesday winter storm. Federal employees who are eligible are encouraged to telework remotely. “They must account for the entire workday by teleworking, taking unscheduled leave (paid or unpaid) or other paid time off, or a combination, in accordance with law, regulations, agency policies and procedures, and any applicable collective bargaining requirements (as consistent with law),” OPM said. Emergency employees should report to their worksites unless given other instructions.
