Sick-time pay in MN raises concerns

"MaryJo Webster of The Pioneer Press reported that the state of Minnesota paid about $57 million in unused sick time from January 2008 to June 2012 to departing workers. Now, Minnesota legislators from both sides of the aisle are calling for inquiries into the payments, with one senator saying, "we need to take an aggressive look so that we make sure that not only the citizens of our state - the taxpayers - are being protected, but also that our employees are protected as well.'"

The calls came after reports in the Pioneer Press and on KSTP-TV on the issue.
