Emergency Federal Employee Leave

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 signed into law on March 11, 2021, provides an important new leave benefit for letter carriers affected by COVID-19. Effective March 12, it establishes a new category of leave called Emergency Federal Employee Leave (EFEL).

EFEL is available to all federal employees if they experience a Covid-19 related absence which qualifies under the provisions of the Act.  For the current USPS guidance on EFEL leave entitlements, the qualifying reasons, and the procedures for this requesting leave, click here.

Kids don’t go to school in the summer time. It’s summer vacation. Schools are closed! But I’m sure some workers will scam the system..

Where do you live that its summer? Its still snowing in most areas. School doesnt get out until late mid to late June in most states.

So basically this is a call out whenever you feel like it for single moms. Why not give a bonus to people that actually show up for work and have to get abused by the increased workloads?
