Q: According to the Office of Personnel Management, if a government employee travels on a federal holiday then no additional compensation is allowed. I’m a National Security Personnel System employee and traveled on President’s Day. I know if I worked I would be entitled to “double” pay: holiday, plus regular pay. What applies to travel on Holidays for NSPS employees?
A: To the best of my knowledge there is no exception to that rule. However, you’ll need to check with your own payroll office on the remote chance that an exception has been carved out for NSPS employees.
