Employees of the Oswego County E-911 department who were paid for regular time hours when working overtime are expected to receive compensation for the amount they were shorted.
The legislature’s Finance and Personnel Committee voted Tuesday to transfer $56,460 from the contingency account to cover the cost of the additional payments owed to the impacted employees.
For 15 years, the E-911 Center has operated on a 12-hour rotating shift with no built-in overtime as agreed to by management, employees and the union representing the employees, according to an information memo submitted with the resolution to authorize the budget transfer.
