As thousands converge on Washington, D.C., for a June 12 parade celebrating the Capitals hockey team’s recent win of the Stanley Cup, federal agencies are being encouraged to let their employees telework to avoid the increased traffic.
“To help alleviate traffic congestion, agencies may authorize telework or other workplace flexibilities at their discretion. Employees may also request to use their alternative work schedule day off, annual leave, or other authorized time off,” an Office of Personnel Management spokesperson told Federal Times.
For those employees that still have to brave the parade frenzy, some may get the chance to celebrate the victory, as the White House is also encouraging agencies located in D.C. to give employees two hours of administrative leave between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to attend the parade.
