Opening arguments began in December in the federal civil trial of two U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents based in Philadelphia who are suing the U.S. Justice Department for reverse discrimination.

Do we have to pay a premium wage to employees who work on a federal holiday? ...

Q. My employee, who is a union member, has a nonwork-related injury that requires a six-week absence from work. In the meantime, she is receiving $300 per week through a union trust fund that provides her and other covered union members with short-term disability benefits. She also has requested and was placed on FMLA leave. We’d like her to substitute any unpaid FMLA leave with paid leave, which is our usual company policy when someone is out on FMLA leave. Is there a problem with doing this in this situation?
