GovExec Daily: Annual Leave and Essential Feds
Erich Wagner joins the podcast to discuss OPM's decision letting some feds carry over unused annual leave that exceeds the typical cap in January.
Normally, federal employees have to heed the “use it or lose it” nature of most of their unused leave. But last year, OPM determined that the pandemic was considered an “exigency of the public business,” thus allowing public servants to carry over more than the 30-day maximum at the end of the year.
