What is the judiciary’s policy on excused absences disasters, weather-related emergencies, or a pandemic health care crisis?


When a government facility (workplace) is closed due to a disaster or other emergency, all non-essential employees who are not authorized and not able to telework are granted excused absence. Once a chief judge or his or her designee reopens the facility or establishes an alternative work-site, employees should be notified that they should return to duty.
