BART official earns $330K without working

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP)

Bay Area Rapid Transit’s highest-paid employee last year earned more than $330,000 – even though she didn’t work a single day for the public agency.

The Bay Area News Group (http://bit.ly/102JORG ) reports that former BART general manager Dorothy Dugger resigned under pressure in May 2011, but stayed on the payroll for another 19 months.

According to the newspaper’s analysis, the 57-year-old Dugger cashed in nearly 80 weeks of unused vacation time, drawing paychecks and full benefits, including nearly two extra months of vacation.

Dugger says she was entitled to the money because she earned more than 3,100 hours of unused vacation time during a 20-year career with BART.

BART board member Robert Raburn says Dugger’s payout shows there’s a serious problem in how the agency deals with unused time off.

    灣區捷運一方面靠管理不善揩乘客的油(如设立误导的双时段停车收费罚款但自动收费机印出的收据特意不提醒等),另一方面管理不善浪费纳税人的钱。二十年前的假期应按二十年前此雇员的工资标准付所以一般假期保留不超过三年过期作废。不使用假期不是工作努力而是影响公司的正常人事时间安排。不知道灣區捷運因此员工二十年不休假少提供了多少个他人的工作机会。
