OPM CONFIRMS BACK PAY FOR FEDS AFTER MOST RECENT SHUTDOWN - February 21, 2018
OPM Confirms Back Pay for Feds Affected by Latest Shutdown
By Erich Wagner, Government Executive
Officials at the Office of Personnel Management announced Friday that all federal employees furloughed as a result of the hours-long shutdown earlier this month will receive back pay for time lost.
In a memo released Friday, acting OPM Director Kathleen McGettigan told agencies that the 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act, approved by Congress early on Feb. 9, includes language granting retroactive compensation to any federal employees furloughed because lawmakers missed the midnight deadline to fund the government.
