A public employee is one who works for a federal, state, or local government and is paid by the government. An example of a public employee include those in civil service jobs, such as those working for the United States Postal Service (USPS), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), as well as those who hold public office.
The laws are quite different for public vs. private employees, which makes it vital for anyone thinking of putting a wage and hour claim against their employer in the public sector to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer.
