Fired officers earning compensation during long appeals

John Diedrich of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found that since 1994, "Milwaukee has paid more than $2.1 million in pay and benefits to 30 fired officers who were not reinstated, including six whose cases were still pending as of Friday." Fired officers don't have to repay wages earned while they appeal their firings. Milwaukee firefighters, in contrast, lose their pay while on appeal and get back pay if they are reinstated.
