OPM Issues New Details on Emergency Paid Leave
"The Office of Personnel Management is out with more details on the new, highly-anticipated emergency paid leave program, which the Biden administration included in the president’s COVID-19 relief package. The American Rescue Plan, which Congress passed into law in March, created a $570 million emergency paid leave fund. It allows federal employees to receive up to 600 hours, or 15 weeks, of paid leave for a variety of pandemic-related reasons."
