The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is the government’s human resources agency. Government Matters’ Mimi Geerges spoke to OPM Director Kiran Ahuja about the latest news affecting federal civilian employees.

  • OPM’s new voting guidance provides time off for early voting and election days and expands leave for participating as a non-partisan poll worker, said Ahuja.
  • She said the agency wants to encourage participation in elections, remove barriers and serve as the country’s model employer.
  • She also addressed equal pay, saying it is a “moral imperative” for government to work towards gender pay equity.
  • Ahuja said OPM is providing tools for agencies to conduct pay equity analyses and will issue guidance later this year focusing on not using prior salary history to set pay.
  • OPM announced a federal civilian minimum wage of $15 per hour in January in response to general agreement across government that it was the right thing to do, said Ahuja.
