U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Bergh, 352 U.S. 40 (1956)

United States v. Bergh

No. 17

Argued October 15, 1956

Decided November 19, 1956

352 U.S. 40


In the absence of a valid employment agreement to the contrary, per diem employees of the Navy are not entitled, under the Joint Resolution of June 29, 1938, 5 U.S.C. § 86a, or the Joint Resolution of January 6, 1885, 23 Stat. 516, to an extra day's compensation for each holiday worked during the year 1945. Pp. 352 U. S. 40-48.

(a) This conclusion, and the conclusion that the 1885 Resolution was repealed in toto by the 1938 Resolution, are supported by the legislative history, by the contemporary administrative interpretation of the 1938 Resolution, and by the treatment accorded these Resolutions by the House Committee on the Revision of the Laws. Pp. 352 U. S. 42-47.

(b) United States v. Kelly, 342 U. S. 193, distinguished. Pp. 352 U. S. 47-48.

132 Ct.Cl. 564, 132 F.Supp. 462, reversed.
