House Introduces Bill to Provide Back Pay for Certain Federal Employees Furloughed During the Government Shutdown

On November 14, 2013, Rep. Eleanor Homes (D-DC), along with 11 other co-sponsors, introduced the “Low-Wage Federal Contractor Employee Back Pay Act of 2013” (H.R. 3500). If enacted, the bill would provide back pay for lost wages to federally contracted retail, food, custodial, and security workers furloughed during the October 2013 federal government shutdown. The back pay would be based on the workers’ standard compensation rate, and would be provided for the days in which these employees were placed on unpaid leave. Following its introduction, the bill was referred to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
