Linn County employees skipping vacation?

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -- Elected officials in Linn County are looking into reports that some county employees may not be taking enough time off.

County Auditor Joel Miller recently wrote an e-mail to Supervisor Linda Langston questioning the wisdom of letting county employees take little or no vacation in a year, and then run up giant vacation time accounts.

Miller says employees who don't take vacation can earn more than their annual salary because of year-end payouts for unused vacation, and may be setting a bad example.

Langston says County Human Resources Director Lisa Powell is looking into the matter and the supervisors will address it in mid-May. Powell says the handful of employees with giant vacation or paid leave accounts are managers who have worked at the county for a long time.
