    I have attached a Workers Comp report which shows overtime paid from 1-1-22 thru 12-15-22. Please keep in mind that this is a workers comp report, so the gross wages and O/T amount do NOT add to total gross wages (WC Wage on the report). However, it is an accurate representation of the OT Wages Spindale has paid this calendar year. If you have questions about reading it let me know.

    Hi Cathy,

     

    Upon further inspection — I do still have one additional question, sorry. Can you please clarify whether you are also saying that it is not possible for you to provide the record requested in item # 6 ?

     

    6) Overtime Paid to Employee [ as of the present day]

     

    Thank you.

    The document provided was created by me for the Board of Commissioners as of 7-1-22 which includes the current COLA. The salaries are current as of 12-5-22 as you requested. Our current payroll system does not have a report that will give the specific requirements that you requested. This was as close as I could get.

    Hi Cathy,

     

    Thank you for your reply.

     

    The title of the document you provided suggests that the most recent salary information for employees you can provide is back on 07/01/2022. Is that correct?

     

    Can you please confirm whether or not it’s possible for you to query the records as requested ( “… as of 12/05/22 (or on the date the query is performed”) ] ?

     

    If you are saying that the information from 07/01/22 is still up-to-date and accurate as of today 12/12/22, then please specify.

     

    **If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law.**
