OPM Leave Administration

The Office of Personnel Management provides Governmentwide leadership on Federal leave policies and programs. This is accomplished by developing and maintaining Governmentwide 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.


For more information on leave policies, agencies may contact (202) 606-2858, FAX: (202) 606-0824, or send an email message to payleave@opm.gov.
