Recommendation Follow-­up: Management of Overtime: Best Practice Controls Can Help in Developing Needed Policies and Procedures

April 02, 2014 |  Correspondence

At your request, this memorandum provides our views regarding the company’s proposal to implement a recommendation in the subject report dealing with the adequacy of controls over approving overtime in excess of $35,000. As you know, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 continued to place a $35,000 cap on the amount of overtime that can be earned annually by an Amtrak employee, but allowed the cap to be waived when the President of Amtrak determines that such a cap poses a risk to safety or operational efficiency of the system.
