DHS Owes 148 Workers Overtime For Training

Topics in Legal News Posted on

Courthouse News reports nearly 150 current and former Department of Homeland Security employees are entitled to overtime pay for training a sixth day each week, the Court of Federal Claims ruled.

The agency employees said the department failed to pay them overtime for a mandatory sixth day of training at its Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga.

The government admitted that it never paid overtime for those extra days, but argued that the 148 employees missed their two-year deadline to sue under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
