Sec. 2. The heads of executive branch departments and agencies may determine that certain offices and installations of their organizations, or parts thereof, must remain open and that certain employees must report for duty on December 24, 2012, for reasons of national security, defense, or other public need.
Sec. 3. Monday, December 24, 2012, shall be considered as falling within the scope of Executive Order 11582 of February 11, 1971, and of 5 U.S.C. 5546 and 6103(b) and other similar statutes insofar as they relate to the pay and leave of employees of the United States.

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
Does this free day off apply to any military ?
Son of a Beach, I have to work!
Without pay, right?
If they want the day off, they should have to use their own vacation. Wonder if he will give them NY Eve off too.
And, of course, you were just as riled up when other presidents, other Republican Presidents, have done this in the past?
Party like there’s no tomorrow.
Yes. And I work for the Department of Defense.
If it happened, than I’m sure we were. If you can prove otherwise, please do so.
So let it be written. So let it be done.
Kwanzaa off too?
Gotta work,gonna get those truck drivers home for Christmas.
Civil servant or contractor?
Call out the Dems.
Get Wall Street on their backs.
President George W. Bush twice (2001 and 2007) gave feds the day off (Monday) when Christmas fell on Tuesday.
The Fed employees get two days to celebrate what?
Hate to tell ya Bush did it twice.
