Description

When we learned many government employees are paid out for unused sick time upon retirement, we wanted to know how much was paid out. We filed FOIA's seeking data for three years from the city, county and state. Considering the state of economy and agencies in all levels of government eliminating positions and laying workers off, why is government paying millions of dollars to people no longer working in government? This is also a benefit virtually unheard of in the private sector.
