Seattle school managers get questionable OT payments

A KIRO 7 investigation finds that some at Seattle's schools may be violating the HR policy by paying overtime to select district managers who aren’t entitled to make extra money.

A months-long investigation reveals a radio station supervisor is the exempt manager making the most OT, banking about $70,000 in the last 2 ½ years. Plus, a little-known government benefit is costing the district millions. Many WA state workers can cash out sick leave. In 2 ½ years, Seattle Schools paid out nearly $2.5 million in sick leave payouts. Only 4% of the private sector enjoys the same benefit.
