The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) provides leadership on Federal leave policies and programs. We accomplish this by developing and maintaining Governmentwide regulations and policies for agencies to use to administer leave, including annual leave, sick leave, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Federal leave sharing programs, military leave, and time off for special circumstances - e.g., early dismissal or closure for weather emergencies. Ultimately, each Federal agency is responsible for complying with the law and OPM's Governmentwide regulations and following OPM's policies and guidance to administer leave policies and programs for its own employees.
