Title

Amending Sections 3.32 (5)(e)3, 3.32(5)(e)4 and 3.32(5)(e)5 of the Madison General Ordinances to provide sick leave payout on the pay date of pay period 25 and amending section 3.54(14)(b)7 of the Madison General Ordinances to provide comp time payout on the pay date of pay period 26.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  The amendments to the payout of sick time and comp time bring the ordinances in line with the language from the employee handbook and, with the change to the payroll periods earlier this year, ensure that employees who normally receive a 13-day payout are not short one pay period of sick leave earned/paid.
