    Company paying only 75% of federal per diem rate

      I have worked on a DOD contract since 2009. In 2014 the DOD decided to implement a policy of only paying government employees 75% per diem on travel over 30 day. They pay 55% for travel over 180 days. I am not a government employee, but my company has chosen to apply this policy to its employees as well. They say since we are on a DOD contract that us contractors fall under the Joint Travel Regulation. I have found that this is not true by calling DOD Human Resource. My question is this legal?
