Homeland Security employees are helping themselves to unearned overtime, costing the federal agency a lot of money, whistleblowers are reporting, according to the Washington Post.

The overtime can add as much as 25% to a paycheck and is used as an incentive for new employees, the Post reported.

The federal Office of Special Counsel on Thursday released a report that declared Homeland Security is involved in a “gross waste of government funds.”

Overtime pay in six offices reached $8.7 million a year, the Post reported.
