Are you a federal employee scheduled to take administrative leave? Ensure that the Agency is properly calculating your leave request.
In 2008, Washington, D.C., became the second city in the nation to mandate paid sick leave. Under the Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act, many workers in D.C. now receive between three and seven paid sick days per year. However, certain professionals - including some health care workers and tipped workers - are exempt from the mandate. Last week, the D.C. Council announced that it will consider expanding the protections of the law to some of those workers.
Life is always evolving. Sometimes families are greeted by newly born or adopted members. Sometimes families experience the significant illness or injury of one of their own. When these joyous and challenging life events occur, the law generally protects the rights of employees to take time off without fear of incurring employment discrimination as a result of that leave.
