Government Shutdown

If you are a federal employee who is being required to work during the government shutdown, you may be entitled to additional compensation by reason of any delays you experience in receiving your paycheck due to the government shutdown. Late payments may constitute a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 


A violation of the FLSA may entitle you to double the amount of the late payment.  So, even if the government, after the shutdown is over, pays what it should have paid you, you could be entitled to receive in addition, that same amount as damages for the government’s violation of the FLSA.  


If you would like more information regarding your rights to receive that additional compensation, please call (617) 439-3939 or (800) 287-8119 or email Alternatively, you may click here to contact us through our website.


We would be happy to discuss your situation without any cost or obligation to you.
