Falls Church company employees donate wages to help federal contractors

Posted: Updated:
FALLS CHURCH, Va. -

Federal contractors are in a special bind during the current government shutdown. If the Senate goes along with the House and votes to give retroactive pay to federal workers, it won't apply to federal contractors, who are also not working now.

So a Falls Church consulting company that offers technology solutions in cyber security, cloud computing and enterprise infrastructure management decided to help its federal contractors who are shut out of job projects by allowing employees to donate paid time off hours.

IntelliDyne's Chief Executive Officer, Tony Crescenzo, says, "We really weren't satisfied with putting our people on leave without pay." So some 286 regular employees donated enough paid time off to allow 14 affected federal contractors to get paid through the middle of November.

Jeff Ayoub of Germantown is one of them. He's a database administration, who's assigned to the Justice Department. He's been spending more time at home with his family since the shutdown. The first week IntelliDyne paid him and the other contractors to do personal development in on-line courses. Ayoub says he is grateful to his colleagues for their generous donations.
