If OPM announces an early or immediate departure, may I leave my worksite prior to the announced departure time?

Yes. Tier II and III non-emergency employees who depart prior to the early, immediate, or final departure time may request to use unscheduled leave. Such employees will be charged leave for the remainder of their workday and will not be granted excused absence.
