Correctional Health Care should work, as necessary, with the state agency that currently employs the supervising nurse to require him either to correct his 2014 time sheets by using earned leave for the 14 workdays when he improperly claimed military leave or to pay the State $5,988 for the leave he improperly claimed on the 14 workdays.
Agency Response From May 2016
The agency that currently employs the supervising nurse revised his official leave balances to accurately reflect the use of earned leave credits rather than military leave. We reviewed the supervising nurse's leave records and verified their accuracy.
