DepCor officers getting OT this Friday

by Mindy Aguon

This Friday isn't a Government of Guam payday, but officers at the Department of Corrections can expect to be cashing-in.  Overtime payments that haven't been paid in the last year will be sent out on Friday.

DepCor Director J.B. Palacios says the Department of Administration has been processing the checks, since the Bureau of Budget & Management Research has said that the more than $300,000 is available.  Palacios adds the checks were supposed to be cut last week, but DOA conducted an audit to ensure officers receive the correct amount.

"Some of the checks were already cut, but for the purpose of equity, we want to make sure that everybody gets their check at one time. We don't want any one officer to feel that a particular officer or group of officers are more important than them," said Palacios.
