Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

May an employee receiving annual premium pay (for regularly scheduled standby duty or administratively uncontrollable overtime work), or a criminal investigator receiving availability pay, receive hazardous duty pay?

5 U.S.C. 5545(c)(1) & (2) authorize the payment of annual premium pay for regularly scheduled standby duty and administratively uncontrollable overtime work, and 5 U.S.C. 5545a(c) authorizes availability pay, instead of some other types of premium pay, including hazardous duty pay. Thus, hazardous duty pay may not be paid for hours of work for which an employee is paid these types of premium pay.
