Judge Denies Requests for Pay by Air Traffic Controllers Affected by Shutdown

A federal judge refused to issue an order to require the government to pay federal employees who are now working without pay during the ongoing partial government shutdown.

District Judge Richard Leon also denied two requests for temporary restraining orders regarding whether federal employees who are deemed essential and required to work without pay during the shutdown should be forced to work.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar on efforts to mitigate the impact of the partial government shutdown and the push for lower drug prices without hurting innovation within the pharmaceutical industry.

The three lawsuits come from the National Treasury Employees Union, National Air Traffic Controllers Association, and a group of five federal workers. The most obvious outcome for the economy is that roughly 800,000 federal workers are not being paid.

"If employees are working, they have to paid".

"The judiciary is not another source of leverage", Leon said.

In mid-January 2019, a meme spread on social media that led some users to believe furloughed federal government employees could be fired if the government remains in an ongoing shutdown for 30 days. Their lawsuit is based on the Fair Labor Standards Act that entitles federal workers to double pay if they are not compensated on time.

Leon denied all three temporary restraining orders but set a schedule for hearings regarding preliminary injunctions requested by all three suits, so while attorneys for federal employees did not win on Tuesday, they will have another chance to argue their cases before the judge. That's the deadline for the federal government to respond to their case.
