    NTEU Wins Overtime Pay for 100 PTO Employees

    Approximately 100 NTEU-represented employees at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) will soon have the proper overtime protections and will receive back pay plus liquidated damages for unpaid overtime going back to 2018.

    Under a settlement secured by NTEU, PTO agreed to reclassify employees in nine positions as non-exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which entitles them to overtime pay for work time exceeding 40 hours per work week. Some of these employees have already been reclassified as non-exempt and have received back pay amounting to nearly $46,000 in total. PTO will issue additional payments to impacted employees starting in July and running through the fall. Covered employees will soon receive more information from NTEU and the agency.

    NTEU has a strong track record of fighting for—and winning—the proper overtime coverage and back pay for employees we represent.
