FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -
State officials have agreed to pay $175,000 in unpaid overtime to Jefferson County social workers as part of a settlement with the U.S. Department of Labor.
Cabinet for Health and Family Services Secretary Audrey Tayse Haynes told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/18M8qjK) that 140 social workers should start receiving payments this week. She says the department has changed policies to ensure that workers are paid for overtime.
A Jefferson County social worker complained about working unpaid overtime to the U.S. Department of Labor in October 2011.
After the complaint, the cabinet asked its Office of Inspector General to investigate the allegations. The report from the investigation, obtained by the Lexington Herald-Leader through an open records request, found that undocumented overtime was pervasive in Jefferson County.
