afge week in review (august 4, 2008)
fers employees to get credit for unused sick leave:
the american federation of government employees (afge) scored another victory when the house last week passed a bill that would allow federal employees covered by the federal employees retirement system (fers) to get paid for their unused sick leave. unlike those in the older civil service retirement system, fers employees currently do not receive credit for their unused sick leave in their pension calculations. under the bill, the fers employees who retire within the first three years of the enactment of the bill would get credit for 75 percent of their unused sick leave. those retiring later would get credit for all unused sick leave.
the bill would also automatically enroll new federal employees in the thrift savings plan. currently, new employees have to enroll in the tsp, but many of them find the explanations about the tsp during their employee orientations confusing and decide not to enroll, inadvertently losing out on the agency matches to their contributions, including the one percent of salary that agencies are required to provide to all fers employees with a tsp account.
the fers measures, championed by rep. henry waxman, d-calif., and rep. jim moran, d-va., is part of the family smoking prevention and tobacco control act. the senate version of the tobacco bill doesn't have the fers provisions, but they are expected to survive the house and senate conference.
