Permits federal agencies to provide additional leave for federal employees working in specified foreign areas. Agencies could grant up to 5 days of leave to those employees to recognize local holidays or to advance the diplomatic interests of the United States. Under the bill, agencies could also grant up to 20 days of leave for rest and recuperation to federal employees in combat zones or other areas with high levels of political violence or terrorism. Currently, agencies may provide administrative leave for those purposes, but the Administrative Leave Act of 2016 generally limits the amount to 10 days. Because final regulations implementing that law have not been issued, those limitations have not yet gone into effect.
