A decision was requested regarding the annual leave account of a Public Health Service (PHS) officer who had departed his permanent duty station on a Wednesday in a leave status and returned to a duty status 5 days later on the following Monday. Leave entitlements for PHS officers are distinct from those for members of the armed forces. The officer was entitled to have only 3 days charged to his annual leave account since he was not scheduled for duty during the weekend, and applicable regulations provide that nonworkdays immediately following a period of leave are not chargeable to annual leave.
