If you are a Federal Employee Grade 11 or below at any federal Agency nationwide, the federal government may owe you thousands of dollars for work that you performed but did not get paid for.
On every Federal Employee's SF-50, box 35 states whether you are exempt (E) or non-exempt (N) from the Fair Labor Standards Act. The FLSA is the law that entitles you to receive overtime pay if you work more than 40 hours in a week. If you are a grade 11 or below, you should generally be classified as a non-exempt employee meaning that you should get paid overtime for any work that you do over 40 hours in a week. This includes arriving to work early (even a few minutes a day adds up), staying late, working on weekends, working at home, working on weekends and federal holidays, etc. What this also means is that if you did work more than your 40 hours, you should have been paid overtime at time and a half and should not have been “paid” in compensatory time unless you specifically chose to receive the compensatory time as opposed to the overtime pay. Unfortunately, the government has wrongfully classified thousands of Grade 11 and below employees as Exempt from the FLSA which means they have not been entitled nor have they received this money that they deserve. This is illegal and while it has saved the government millions of dollars, the money may actually belong to you.
