What is the policy for receiving night differential pay?
For General Schedule employees, night pay is a 10 percent differential paid for regularly scheduled work performed at night. It is computed as a percentage of the employee's rate of basic pay (including any applicable locality payment or special rate supplement).

Wage grade employees receive night shift differential at the rate of 7.5 percent of their hourly rate for non-overtime work when a majority (five or more hours) of the scheduled hours occur between 3 p.m. and midnight, or 10 percent of their hourly rate for non-overtime work when a majority of the scheduled hours occurs between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. Night shift differentials are paid for the entire shift.
