OPM offers up details on new emergency paid leave for federal employees

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.

Part-time employees are also eligible for emergency paid leave on a prorated basis depending on the number of hours they work.
