Federal agencies have coronavirus hiring authorities from the Office of Personnel Management through the rest of this year. That authority lets agencies hire employees to work on the pandemic response and serve terms up to two years.

  • Jeffrey Neal, former Chief Human Capital Officer at the Department of Homeland Security, said as more people get vaccinated, agencies should communicate to employees that they will probably have to revise their plans for returning to the workplace as they gather more information.
  • Neal said agencies must think about the safety of employees who cannot or will not get a coronavirus vaccine in addition to vaccinated employees.
  • Some factors agencies will have to consider are how well-ventilated buildings are, how much telework to have and how to determine which employees telework, said Neal.
