The US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has announced that there would be no paid public sector holiday for the upcoming second inauguration of President Obama.

By law, the US presidential Inauguration Day is a legal public holiday on January 20th of every fourth year for the public sector of the Washington, DC, area (the District of Columbia, Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties in Maryland, Arlington and Fairfax Counties in Virginia, the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church in Virginia).

In the event that January 20th falls on Sunday, such as is the case this year, then the following Monday is a legal public holiday. However, this year, Monday, January 21, is also the date of the public holiday for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday.

As per the memo released by OPM: "both holidays will be observed on the same day, Monday, January 21, 2013" and "there is no entitlement to anin lieu ofholiday".
