FLSA waiver approved for December 2014 to April 2015

Over the weekend, Deputy Commissioner McAleenan emailed BP sectors and notified them that DHS had approved the waiver for FLSA payments from December 18, 2014, through April 18, 2015. That means that Border Patrol agents will not have to pay back any FLSA that was earned during that time frame.

The Senate amendment is still going through the typical process. If the amendment passes, it will grant us FLSA coverage through the rest of the calendar year, effectively making the waivers a moot issue. We'll post more information as we get it.
