|Some IRS military reservists may qualify for restored annual leave or payment|
If you simultaneously worked for the IRS and served in the military reserves between Oct. 10, 1980, and Dec. 21, 2000, and didn't file a previous claim for restored annual leave or payment, you may now do so.
An IRS-NTEU Memorandum of Understanding (.pdf) regarding the Uniformed Services Employment and Restoration Rights Act (USERRA) allows you to file a claim for restored annual leave or payment if you can show that the IRS erroneously charged military leave on weekends or non-workdays.
To file a claim, you must follow the procedures found in IRM 6.630.1.20, Military Leave for Reserves or National Guard, and use the IRS's USERRA claim form (.pdf). If you've already filed "Butterbaugh claims" (Butterbaugh vs. Department of Justice) with AWSS and were constrained by the six-year limitation, you may file subsequent claims using these procedures for separate timeframes.
