Snow Policy

If offices in the District of Columbia Government are closed due to inclement weather conditions, hearings for that day will be postponed and rescheduling notices will be issued.

If there is a liberal or unscheduled leave policy in effect for District of Columbia Government employees, hearings for that day will be postponed and rescheduling notices will be issued.  However, if the parties appear and the ALJ assigned to the case is also in the office, the ALJ may elect to proceed with the scheduled hearing.

If there is a one or two hour delay for District of Columbia Government employees to report to work, all hearings scheduled to begin after the end of the delay will be held.  For example, if there is a one-hour delay, all hearings scheduled to begin after 10 am will be held.  If there is a two-hour delay, all hearings scheduled to begin after 11 am will be held.

If there is a liberal or unscheduled leave policy combined with a one or two hour delay in effect for District of Columbia Government employees, hearings for that day will be postponed and a rescheduling notice will be issued.
