Office of Personnel Management Seal
WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal agencies in the Washington area are open but workers are being allowed to arrive up to two hours later than normal as freezing rain continues in the region.
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which sets leave policies for 300,000 federal workers, says the government is open Monday, but operating under a delayed arrival policy where employees can arrive up to two hours later than normal. Workers also have the option to take unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.
