About Compensation and Leave Decisions

Compensation and leave claims generally arise under either the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or Title 5 of the United States Code. The FLSA provides for minimum standards for both wages and overtime entitlements. This highlighted link will take you to decisions involving Federal employees and the FLSA.

This site contains all of the compensation and leave decisions we have issued since July 1, 1996, pursuant to 31 U.S.C. § 3702 (non-FLSA pay and leave claims), 5 U.S.C.§ 5582 (claims for unpaid compensation of deceased employees), 38 U.S.C. § 5122 (claims for the benefits of deceased beneficiaries of Veterans’ benefits) and 31 U.S.C. § 3529 (requests for advance opinions by agency certifying and disbursing officers).

This site contains a search engine, the rules of procedures for submitting claims, and a list of recent cases.

Some information within these documents has been withheld from disclosure under the Privacy Act exemption to the Freedom of Information Act, primarily the name, address and other personal information related to the claimant. A [xxx] symbol indicates where information has been withheld under this exemption.

All decisions since October 1, 1997, include the file number and date. Many decisions issued before that date do not have this information on the electronic copy. Although the names of the primary staff writer for each decision is provided, we do not include an email link to that person. We do not respond to email inquiries. Instructions for submitting claims for non-FLSA compensation and leave are included in the Rules of Procedure.
