School employees paid for time not worked

August 16, 2006

Albany -- A couple of Dougherty County School Board members say taxpayers are paying some employees for time they're not working.

Up to 300 year-round employees are allowed to leave work early when school isn't in session, but they're still paid for a full day.

School board member David Maschke says that's not fair. He says leaving early has been a practice, but never a policy.

"It amounts to a significant amount of money being paid out for work that wasn't being done, costing the school system roughly 200-thousand, maybe a quarter million dollars a year, and other employees weren't receiving this benefit," said school board member David Maschke.

The school board voted 5 to 2 to keep the unearned leave and pay practice as it is.
