Erich Wagner and Tom Shoop join the podcast to discuss what public servants need to know about the hazard pay lawsuit filed by five feds and AFGE.
The coronavirus has forced many federal employees to telework, but many feds aren’t able to work anywhere other than their actual workplace. Public servants like VA radiologists or workers who work with food in federal prisons are nearer to COVID-19 than those who can quarantine.
Last week, five feds filed a class action lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s administration, arguing that they -- and other public servants -- were exposed to the novel coronavirus and are owed hazard pay because of it.
Erich Wagner and Tom Shoop joined the podcast to talk about the hazard pay lawsuit and the future of hazard pay for feds during the pandemic.
