We’ve published a new page describing protections for federal workers in the ongoing pandemic. The page addresses leave, telework, and other topics, focusing in particular on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). You can check out the page here.
As discussed on our Pay & Overtime page, federal government employees are sometimes denied overtime pay to which they are entitled under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other laws.
Two law firms, James & Hoffman and Bernstein & Lipsett, are pursuing a lawsuit under the FLSA for employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs in the Diagnostic Radiological Technologist job series (0647). These employees were classified as “exempt” and thus not paid time-and-one-half overtime pay. Instead, they were paid a lesser amount of overtime pay.
If you are an employee at the VA in this job series and are classified as “exempt,” you may be able to participate in the case. You can request more information by contacting the following email address: VAcase@jamhoff.com.
