Facts on the Emergency Leave Transfer Program

As soon a Hurricane Harvey hit, NTEU reached out to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) asking if OPM would authorize agencies to put in place emergency leave transfer programs (ELTP) to help federal employees dealing with hardships in the aftermath of the storm.
