Guadalupe County Commissioners Court to define employee pay during emergency closings
Posted on 1/30/2018 7:19:00 AM.
(Seguin) - The Guadalupe County Commissioners Court hopes to go over and maybe even better explain what happens to an employee's pay when the county is forced to shut down as it did during the icy morning of Jan. 16.
 
Ice day time sheets were reportedly questioned when some non-essential employees had been told that they would be forced to us "their personal leave, comp time, or vacation for any hours they are short on their time sheet."
 
Many employees were said to have been upset saying that in the past they were still compensated for that particular day. There also appeared to have been some confusion as to who at the county level makes that ultimate decision -- the county judge or supervisor of a department.
 
Although some employees have since learned that they would not have to give up a vacation day after all, making sense of the employee personnel policy appears on today's agenda of the Guadalupe County Commissioners Court. County officials say they hope to clarify the language that is currently in the policy with regards to "Emergency Closings."
 
Other agenda items include the approval of a proclamation recognizing Feb. 16 as Texas Food Connection Day and the proclamation of the first Sunday in February as Four Chaplains Sunday in honor of the 75th Anniversary of the four United States Army Chaplains who sacrificed their own lives to save the lives of other servicemen on the Dorchester, a United States Army Transport (USAT) ship that sunk off the coast of Greenland on Feb. 3, 1943.
 
The meeting begins at 10 a.m. in the Guadalupe County Justice Center.
