Document Number: 2010-8957
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-04-19
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is proposing to amend its regulations to provide for continuation of Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) coverage for certain former Senate Restaurant employees who transferred to employment with a private contractor. We are also proposing to change the annual FEHB Program Open Season from the Monday of the second full workweek in November through the Monday of the second full workweek in December, to November 1st through November 30th of each year. We are also adding a new opportunity for eligible employees to enroll in the FEHB Program or to change enrollment from self only to self and family under the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009. Finally, we are proposing to allow FEHB plans to offer three options, without the requirement that one of the options be a high deductible health plan.

Garnishment of Accounts Containing Federal Benefit Payments
Document Number: 2010-8899
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-04-19
Agency: Fiscal Service, Public Debt Bureau, Department of Treasury, Railroad Retirement Board, Agencies and Commissions, Social Security Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of the Treasury, Office of Personnel Management
Treasury, SSA, VA, RRB and OPM (Agencies) are publishing for comment a proposed rule to implement statutory restrictions on the garnishment of Federal benefit payments. The Agencies are taking this action in response to recent developments in technology and debt collection practices that have led to an increase in the freezing of accounts containing Federal benefit payments. The proposed rule would establish procedures that financial institutions must follow when a garnishment order is received for an account into which Federal benefit payments have been directly deposited. The proposed rule would require financial institutions that receive a garnishment order for an account to determine whether any Federal benefit payments were deposited to the account within 60 calendar days prior to receipt of the order and, if so, would require the financial institution to ensure that the account holder has access to an amount equal to the sum of such payments in the account or to the current balance of the account, whichever is lower.

Pay for Sunday Work
Document Number: 2010-8154
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-04-09
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing proposed regulations that would implement the ruling in the case of Fathauer v. United States, 566 F.3d 1352 (Fed. Cir. 2009). In this decision the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled that part- time employees are covered under the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 5546(a), the statute governing the payment of Sunday premium pay for work performed on Sundays. The revised Sunday premium pay regulations would eliminate references to ``full-time'' employees, which will permit Sunday premium payments to part-time employees, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 5546(a). Prevailing rate employees are entitled to payment of Sunday premium pay, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 5544(a). Consistent with the reasoning in the Fathauer decision, OPM has determined that part-time prevailing rate employees are covered under the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 5544(a).

Type: Notice
Date: 2010-04-07
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub.

Like Social Security benefits, the annuity supplement is subject to an earnings limitation.
Prevailing Rate Systems; Nonappropriated Fund Wage and Survey Areas
Document Number: 2010-7764
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-04-06
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a proposed rule to correct several minor formatting, spelling, and typographical errors in Appendix D to Subpart B of Part 532Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) Wage and Survey Areas. This document would also correct editorial or printing errors, inconsistencies, and omissions made in previously published rules. The purpose of this rule is not to make policy changes for Federal Wage System (FWS) NAF employees but rather to ensure Appendix D accurately reflects the correct wage area definitions for NAF employees as recommended by the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee (FPRAC). FWS NAF employees would not be affected by the corrections in this proposed rule because the lead agency for FWS NAF surveys has followed FPRAC recommended wage area definitions when conducting wage surveys and publishing wage schedules. Appendix D would be reprinted in its entirety.
