If you are new to our Time Card Tuesday series we urge you to catch up by first reading the first 14 parts of this series (here). As pointed out in every article, it is abundantly clear, whoever was managing payroll has some explaining to do.
This series would normally bring us into the fourth payroll period in 2015 however we have chosen to jump ahead to the 3/27/2015 to 4/9/2015 pay period considering the overtime on the payroll points to 21 hours being worked.
Time cards for this payroll reflect 21 hours of overtime documented however the math points to a much different number. When proper math is applied, the time cards reflect 13 hours and 30 minutes of overtime documented, not 21 hours. This math difference provides $337.50 extra into the payroll.
The payroll for this period points to 72 hours of regular time worked. Time card documentation also points to 72 hours however the math says otherwise. On April 9th, 2015, there are no times documented for any work yet 8 hours of regular time is recorded as well as 3 hours of overtime. That day alone points to an extra $375.00 in pay for time not worked according to the time card. Overall, time cards point to 63 hours and 10 minutes of time worked. The extra 8 hours and 50 minutes attributed to bad math nets an extra $264.00 in pay.
With extra overtime and regular time amounting to $601.50 during this pay period, the running total of extra pay from questionable time card entries now appears to be $23,489.11.
As we have said multiple times, the McHenry County State’s Attorney had these very time cards but we do not know if he ever evaluated them for the type of discrepancies we are seeing against the actual payroll record. This matter is currently in the hands of the Appellate Prosecutor and we are still awaiting an update on its status.
Stay tuned for next week’s Time Card Tuesday series which we believe will be the final publication on this series.
