FYI: Updated Hatch Act Guidance from the OSC

In November, we published Your EFM Hatch Act Toolkit, with relevant information from the Hatch Act and the Foreign Affairs Manual pertaining to Eligible Family Members.

Recently (February 7, 2017), the Office of Special Counsel issued a memo with updated guidance for federal employees regarding the Hatch Act. The OSC Frequently Asked Questions section about the Hatch Act was updated accordingly.

Please note that, to our knowledge, none of this new information mentions Eligible Family Members or applies to them unless they are employed by the federal government. But we thought you should know about these updates.

The American Foreign Service Association also provides information on acceptable use of social media by federal employees here
