A staff member who requests time to visit the Office of the Ombudsperson during working hours should not be denied the opportunity to do so and may request time during normal working hours for the initial appointment. For subsequent appointments, employees must request additional release time through the Office of the Ombudsperson. Employees who prefer not to notify their supervisors of their intention to visit the Ombudsperson's Office may make special arrangements for noon or after-hours appointments. Third-shift employees should schedule appointments during regular working hours (8 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday) or telephone to make special arrangements.
