Union Calls for Repeal of Homeland Security’s Suspension of Overtime Pay

The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association is urging Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to reconsider his department’s decision to suspend a troubled overtime program, the Washington Post reports.

The overtime was halted last week after a federal investigation found widespread abuse of the “administratively uncontrollable overtime” – as it’s called.

The pay was intended for agents who do urgent, unexpected work.

An internal investigation found that abuse of the pay cost taxpayers between $8 million and $37 million a year, the Post reported.
