OPM Leave Administration Team

OPM Leave Administration

The Office of Personnel Management provides Government-wide leadership on Federal leave policies and programs. This is accomplished by developing and maintaining Government-wide regulations and policies on the administration of leave, including the Family and Medical Leave Act, family-friendly leave policies, Federal leave sharing programs, annual leave, sick leave, and time off for special circumstances--e.g., early dismissal or closure for weather emergencies. However, each Federal agency is responsible for administering leave policies and programs for its own employees.
