Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

If an employee performs a hazardous duty (as listed in appendix A) for a hour during the work shift, does he or she receive the hazard pay differential for only that hour?

No. When an employee performs a duty for which a hazard pay differential is authorized, the agency must pay the hazard pay differential for all of the hours in which the employee is in a pay status on the day on which the duty is performed. (5 CFR 550.905)
