If Federal offices are closed for an extended period of time, may I be recalled to work if I am designated as a Tier III non-emergency employee?

During extended Federal Government closures, NIH may deem that changing circumstances require Tier III employees to report to their worksites. NIH has established procedures for notifying and recalling Tier III employees. Tier III employees are expected to remain in contact with their supervisor at all times during dismissal or closure situations to maintain continuity readiness.
