Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

May an employee receive hazardous duty pay during overtime hours?

Yes, because an employee is in a pay status during overtime hours. However, the hazardous duty pay is computed on the employee's hourly rate of basic pay, not his or her hourly overtime rate. (5 CFR 550.905 and 5 U.S.C. 5545(d)(2))
