From the TL:
The returning retirees – there are 23 – must receive their old pay rate, so the county is paying OneSource Staffing Solutions that amount plus an additional 19 percent for clerical employees and 30 percent for road maintenance workers. OneSource receives a commission and uses the rest of the surcharge to cover employee-related costs such as workers’ compensation, unemployment tax and Federal Insurance Contributions Act payments.
I said our two county commissioners as the the third one, Steve Urban, is still being shut out of decisions.
Urban voted against hiring OneSource, saying he was not given a copy of the contract as he requested, and he believes it would be cheaper to pay the retirees directly, especially because the county tends to get a good workers' compensation rate through its self-insurance.
"Even I don't know who they've brought back," Urban said.
