Case Number I2018-0428

Recommendation #12 To: Transportation, Department of

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) should recoup or correct all overpayments made to the employees we determined to have taken inappropriate bereavement leave.

Agency Response From January 2020

Caltrans reported in August 2019 that it revised the accrued leave for Employee A to correct the overpayment. However, since Employee G left Caltrans to work at another state agency, it was unable to directly revise the employee's leave credits. In November 2019, the state agency where Employee G works revised the accrued leave for the employee to correct for the overpayment.
