HAMILTON - The Marion County Commission unanimously voted to amend the employee handbook concerning overtime hours and retroactively pay employees who worked overtime during the Christmas holiday period on Dec. 23 and 26, 2019, during a regular meeting on Monday, Jan. 13, at the commission office in Hamilton.
According to commission chairman, Tim “Ears” Estes, the county’s employee handbook states that employees must work 40 hours before they receive overtime pay.
This means that holidays would not contribute to hours worked for employees.
Commissioner Kenneth Cochran stated that, during the Christmas period, county employees worked overtime on Dec. 23 and Dec. 26, 2019.
