The Defense Communications Agency requested decision on whether civilian employees detailed to higher grade military personnel positions for extended periods would be entitled to retroactive temporary promotions and backpay. Because these employees could not have been temporarily promoted into military personnel positions, they were ineligible for both retroactive temporary promotions and backpay. Their recourse was classification appeal during tenure at higher grade.
