Rep. Roy Calls for Federal Employees to get Back in the Office
On Tuesday, I sent a letter to the Acting Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) urging the OPM status be changed to open and that federal employees fully return to their jobs in-person.
Due to the ongoing restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 response, numerous in-person government services are unavailable to my constituents and Americans across the country. It is high time federal employees return to their jobs and serve the taxpayers that employ them.
Full text of the letter is available at the link here and below:
U.S. Office of Personnel Management
1900 E Street, NW
Washington, D.C. 20415
Dear Acting Director McGettigan,
It is my understanding that many federal government in-person services remain unavailable as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic response. These services include those administered by the Social Security Administration, passport offices, the Internal Revenue Service, Veterans Affairs, and other government agencies. In fact, the current operating status of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is “Open with maximum telework.”
It is high time to have federal employees return to their jobs and serve the taxpayers that employ them. Please direct your office to change the OPM operational status to open and direct federal employees to return to their jobs in-person.
I look forward to seeing these services available to my constituents again soon.
Member of Congress
