ABSENCE FROM DUTY

Contact your supervisor before leaving your job to make arrangements for your relocation. You may be excused without charge to leave for part of the time you spend getting ready for permanent duty travel. Agency policy governs.

Fort Gordon and HQ TRADOC encourages supervisors to excuse employees from duty, for a reasonable time, NTE 24 hours, to make personal arrangements and to transact personal business directly related to a permanent change of station which is in the interest of the United States Government, provided that such business or arrangement cannot be transacted outside the employee's regular working hours. This includes such things as making arrangements for the packing and unpacking of household goods and obtaining driver's license, auto tag(s), and passport(s) providing employees request the needed time in advance.
