OPM Urges Feds to Telework During Nuclear Summit

Federal employees are encouraged to telework ahead of the Nuclear Security Summit taking place March 31 through April 1 in Washington, D.C.

Warning of “significant traffic disruptions” caused by street closures and security perimeters, The Office of Personnel Management acting Director Beth Cobert urged federal employees to make arrangements to telework or using flexible work options during the summit.

According to the statement released by OPM, President Obama will welcome world leaders from more than 50 nations and four international organizations at the Nuclear Security Summit. The summit takes place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, which is about a mile from the White House.

Cobert said as of now, federal offices in the Washington metro area will remain on “open” operating status during one of the world’s largest gatherings of Heads of State, but employees should monitor the news for any changes to the federal operating status.

“OPM strongly encourages agencies to allow employees to telework to keep the federal government operating while helping to minimize traffic congestion and support law enforcement efforts during this event,” Cobert stated. “Employees may also request to use their alternative work schedule day off, annual leave, leave without pay, previously earned compensatory time off, and/or earned credit hours under a flexible work schedule.”
