DorobekINSIDER: OPM: DC back at work, but… let’s be careful out there
Tuesday - 2/16/2010, 2:00am EST
The federal government in Washington, DC will open under a normal schedule on Wednesday — the first time since Feb. 4. But OPM Director John Berry has let us know that supervisors also need to remember that it still isn’t really normal here in the Washington metro area.
From Berry: “As we ramp up back to normal operations, we aren’t losing sight of the fact that many out there will still have difficulties – and hopefully they and their supervisors can work them out satisfactorily.”
Here is the memo sent to chief human capital officers tonight:
Sent: Tuesday, February 16, 2010 5:23 PM
Subject: IMPORTANT NOTICE: FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OPEN/NORMAL OPERATIONS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010
To All Chief Human Capital Officers, Deputies and Staff:
Please be advised that OPM has determined that on Wednesday February 17, 2010
Federal agencies in the Washington, DC, area will be OPEN and operating on a normal schedule.
As we return to normal operations tomorrow, please convey to your managers and supervisors that there may be continuing situations where federal employees are facing difficulties in returning to work, or returning to work on time. We ask that they be mindful of these circumstances and attempt to utilize as much flexibility as is appropriate in handling these situations on a case by case basis, until the snow is no longer an impediment.
Thank you for your continued cooperation in these efforts.
