Troopers Collect Unused Time Off at Retirement
The Daily Herald in Arlington Heights reports troopers are allowed to bank months of time off during their careers. They can then cash out based on what their final salaries are rather than on averaged salary earned over their career.
Ted Dabrowski of the Illinois Policy Institute says the ability of workers to bank vacation time is rare in the private sector.
State police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the agency's time-banking policies comply with legislative actions, state employment policies and negotiated union agreements.
