OPM Posts New And Revised Leave Fact Sheets

OPM has posted eight revised leave fact sheets on their website:

Sick Leave (General Information)

Sick Leave for Personal Medical Needs

Sick Leave for Family Care and Bereavement

Sick Leave to Care for a Family Member with a Serious Health Condition

Sick Leave for Adoption

Emergency Leave Transfer Program

Voluntary Leave Bank Program

Voluntary Leave Transfer Program

They have also posted three new fact sheets:

Advanced Sick Leave

Definitions Related to Family Member and Immediate Relative

Funeral Leave and Other Bereavement Options


Most of these duplicate what is in the ELM. In particular postal employees should see “Effect of Extended Leave Without Pay (LWOP) (or Other Nonpay Status) on Federal Benefits and Programs.” This is the best explanation of the effect of LWOP on federal benefits that I’ve seen anywhere.
