Propriety of Pay Practices Proposed by the Forest Service
B-191623: May 10, 1978
- Full Report:
GAO received a letter of dated April 4, 1978, inquiring as to the propriety of certain pay practices which have been proposed by the United States Forest Service, in which it considered the possible use of a first-40-hour tour of duty for certain employees. It was inquired whether the proposed action would violate any law inasmuch as the affected employees may be required to work more than 8 hours in a day without being paid overtime therefor. It does not appear from the information furnished to us that the proposed practice would violate the law or Civil Service Commission regulations.
