VA Workers Sue for Backpay

By Sarah Pierce

 

(LEGAFI) -- More than 10,000 current and former employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs can proceed with a class action lawsuit accusing the VA of stiffing them on six years’ worth of weekend pay, according to a news report.

 

The class action lawsuit will cover civil service employees who typically earn “additional pay,” or 25% of their regular hourly wages in addition to their hourly rate, when they work Saturdays. VA employees claim, however, that when they take authorized “paid leave” for Saturday shifts, they have not been receiving the additional pay they would have normally received had they worked on those days.

 

This isn’t the only time the VA has been sued for failing to pay additional pay to employees. Over 59,000 RNs and other healthcare professionals won a class action suit against the VA last year that alleged they too were denied premium pay when they took paid leave. The deadline for filing a claim for that class action suit has passed, but you can still submit a claim to the judge for approval at www.vabackpay.com.

 

The current class action lawsuit is seeking backpay, which is estimated to be around $500 per individual, for all general schedule employees that were employed by the VA after January 1, 2004 and who were denied additional pay for taking leave on Saturday shifts. This includes but is not limited to those who worked on a tour of duty and the following occupations:

Likewise, even during a down economy when budgets are tight should you devote revenue toward marketing.
In most cases, advertisers don't pay anything unless their ad appears and someone clicks it.

Within one month, I had three showings and an offer in hand.

s costing them more money that they can afford or both.
If you are a plant nursery you do not want to simply use
the keyword 'nursery' as your advertisement could be viewed by people
who are searching for a children's nursery, if you were a plant nursery you would be best of using the keyword 'plant nursery', this would still be a very popular keyword within your
industry but it would give you targeted visitors. I have
one ad in my side bar and one at the bottom of each article.

If an ad is shown and then a individual clicks through
it to the advertisers webpage, the user is then billed up to this maximum bid, typically from a pre-paid balance with the chosen PPC
search engine. You will need to close the sale
on your landing page. Within one month, I had three showings and an offer in hand.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
I'm not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.
Kudos!
