  • EPA EMPLOYEES EARNING MORE THAN THEIR LEGAL SALARY CAPS - August 11, 2017
  • EPA Employees Are Earning Emergency Premium Pay Without Justification

    By Eric Katz, Government Executive

    The Environmental Protection Agency is paying employees above their legal salary caps without the required justification, according to a new report.

    Nearly 75 percent of EPA employees at the agency’s region 10 based in Seattle, Wash., who were paid above the statutory biweekly cap in fiscal year 2015 through Jan. 7, 2017, did not request the necessary waiver to do so, the agency's inspector general found. In the 15 cases in which employees did seek the waiver, only one received the requisite approval from the region’s human resources office. The regional administrator signed off on the premium pay in those 15 cases, but in only four of them did the waivers provide appropriate justification for the special pay rate.
