What is the policy for receiving Sunday pay?
General Schedule and wage grade workers whose regular schedules require them to work on a Sunday are entitled to their rate of basic pay, plus premium pay computed at a rate of 25 percent of their basic pay rate. This Sunday premium rate generally is applicable to all non-overtime work (that is not in excess of eight hours per shift), although it also may apply for work in excess of eight hours under a fixed compressed work schedule.

The Sunday work must be part of your regularly scheduled basic workweek and you must actually work to be entitled. You are not entitled to Sunday premium pay for periods when no work is performed, such as paid leave time, excused absences, holidays, compensatory time off, or time off granted as an incentive or performance award.
