My medical GS Title 5 coworkers and I earn a 10% night pay differential for hours worked between 6pm and 6 am. I occasionally have to work unscheduled, unplanned overtime, staying past end of shift, because of emergencies.

If memory serves, we’ve always received night differential in addition to any overtime performed between 6pm and 6am. Lately management says night pay stops at the end of your scheduled shift. If staying past, say, 10pm for an emergency I still get OT past 10 pm but not the night pay past 10 pm, since the OT “wasn’t scheduled in advance of the administrative workweek”. They are unable (or just won’t) cite the OPM regulation on this.

Can anyone shed light on this? Thanks.

From the OPM website https://www.opm.gov/poli...neral-schedule-employees
Quote:

Night pay is a 10 percent differential paid to an employee for regularly scheduled work performed at night. It is computed as a percentage of the employee's rate of basic pay (including any applicable locality payment or special rate supplement).


So yes - in order to qualify for the night differential, it must be scheduled.

I retired in 2012, with 39 years....35 working 24/7/365, rotating thru all 3 shifts in a 5 week period.
When we moved to a 10 hr workday, I still did that, but like you noticed, and as stated above by the previous poster....

My shift from 8a-6p had no shift diff.
2p - Mid contained 6 hrs of 10%
10p - 8a had 8 hrs of shift diff.

When I worked O/T from day shifts (8a - 6p) I sometimes worked til 8, 9 or 10 pm, and those hours from 6p - ??? were overtime with no shift diff.

Sundays were 25% from 6a - 6p, and 10% additional from 6p - mid sunday night, as well as mid to 6a Sunday morning.
So, from Sunday 2p - mid, I received 25% from 2-6p, and 35% from 6p-mid Sunday night.

Confusing at first, but understandable once you know the rulz.
