Inspector General, Office of the

The mission of the Broward Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is to act as an independent watchdog for the residents of Broward County. We promote integrity and accountability by investigating allegations of misconduct including fraud, corruption, and abuse and gross mismanagement, by officials and employees of the charter government of Broward County, its 31 municipalities, and all entities and persons who provide goods and services to the County and the municipalities. The OIG publicly reports its findings to keep residents informed. Whenever appropriate, the OIG seeks criminal prosecution, civil recoveries, administrative and monetary sanctions, and ethics sanctions of those responsible for fraud, waste and abuse in government. Contact the Office of the Inspector General at 954-357-7873, or email inspectorgeneral@broward. org.

Job Basis Leave

FLSA exempt employees are eligible for job basis leave.

Job basis leave is requested and approved in the same manner as annual leave. Job basis leave is intended to be used during the calendar year in which it is available and cannot be carried over from one calendar year to the next nor can the unused value be cashed out. Employees who are in job classifications which require a probationary period are eligible to receive job basis leave while serving their probationary period, unless otherwise specified in their applicable collective bargaining agreement. Employees separated from County service are NOT paid out for any unused job basis leave.

FLSA exempt employees receive job basis leave as follows:

Current full-time employees in job basis-eligible positions as of January 1 of a calendar year will have 40 hours available for use beginning in January of each year (eligible part-time 20-plus hour employees will have 20 hours available for use.)

Full-time employees hired into job basis-eligible positions, or promoted or reclassified into a job basis eligible position between January 1 and June 30, will have 40 hours available for use following the effective date of employment or promotion (eligible part-time 20-plus hour employees will have 20 hours available for use).

Full-time employees hired into job basis-eligible positions or promoted, or reclassified into a job basis eligible position between July 1 and December 31, will have 20 hours available for use following the effective date of employment or promotion (eligible part-time 20-plus hour employees will have 10 hours available for use).

Note: In 2014, Broward County began implementing a new timekeeping and attendance system, easyPay. Certain leave request procedures will change as easyPay is launched countywide. Visit Broward.org/easyPay for updates.

Jury Duty (Civil Leave)

Jury duty is recognized as a civic responsibility. The County pays benefit-eligible employees their regular salary when serving on a Jury, subpoenaed to appear before a public body or commission in connection with the employee’s County employment, or when performing emergency civilian duty in connection with national defense, when such service coincides with, or occurs immediately before or after, his/her regular work schedule. Employees should not accept compensation from the courts for jury duty or for response to a subpoena in the line of duty representing the County, unless otherwise specified in a collective bargaining agreement. In the event an employee receives compensation from the court, the employee is required to endorse payment over to the County.
