USPS Issues Memorandum on American Rescue Plan Act—Emergency Federal Employee Leave

SUBJECT: American Rescue Plan Act—Emergency Federal Employee Leave (pdf)

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has advised the Postal Service that OPM does not anticipate issuing its official guidance on EFEL by April 1, 2021, the original anticipated end date for our interim process. As previously noted, OPM is charged with administering the EFEL Fund (Fund) that will finance leave granted under the ARPA and, therefore, is required to issue guidance on how the leave is to be administered by covered agencies, including the Postal Service. Because of OPM’s need to finalize its guidance, the Postal Service is limited in its ability to fully implement EFEL at this time.
