Feds in D.C. Area Urged to Telework during Pope Francis’s Visit

To help lessen traffic congestion and minimize the distraction to law enforcement and security officials during Pope Francis’s upcoming visit to the Washington, D.C. area on Sept. 22-24, the Office of Personnel Management is strongly urging agencies to allow federal workers in the area to telework to keep the government operating and minimize work disruptions.

Employees may also use their alternate work schedule, take annual leave, leave without pay, or earned compensation time on those three days as massive commuting delays, traffic congestion, crowded buses and trains, road and building closures, and significant detours are expected.
