[Decision Concerning Army Employees' Entitlement to Severance Pay]
B-231638: Aug 9, 1989
- Full Report:
The Army requested a decision regarding three former civilian temporary employees' entitlement to severance pay. GAO held that the Army: (1) appointed the employees from permanent positions to the full-time temporary positions without a break in service; and (2) due to funding constraints, involuntarily separated the temporary employees, who had served for a continuous period of at least 12 months. Accordingly, the former employees were entitled to severance pay.
