The Office of Personnel Management has issued a memorandum which provides additional guidance on the recently announced federal hiring freeze.
The primary purpose of the memo is to provide further detail on the types of exemptions allowed under the hiring freeze.
The Office of Management and Budget also recently released additional implementation guidance for the hiring freeze which supplements this information from OPM.
FedSmith.com author and federal human resources expert Jeff Neal also wrote a blog post with his analysis of the new guidance which provides additional helpful information.
A copy of the OPM memo is included below.
