New York City was sued by the U.S. government on Thursday over allegations it unlawfully reduced pension benefits for police officers who have served in the military since the September 11, 2001, attacks. The class action accuses the city of using only police officers' base pay to calculate benefits, while the law states an employer must take into account the compensation that the service member would likely have earned had he or she not been performing military service.
