Algonquin Township Road District Time Card – Fuzzy math?

McHenry Co. (ECWd) –Basic Math – 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 1+3=4, etc. According to the policy manual, the following apply to pay:

• if a person is “required” to work on a Holiday, they get paid overtime, (time and a half) for that work.   And you guessed it, Bob Miller must have “required” his own wife to work on Columbus Day in 2016.
• Overtime will be provided after 40 hours in a week regardless of the hours worked in any one (1) day.

Fuzzy Math – 1 Anna May Miller time card for Week ending October 16, 2016:

• October 9, 2016 – Clock in 2:45, Clock out 4:45 pm = 2 hrs overtime
• October 10, 2016- Columbus Day Clock in at 6:45 Clock out at 1:30 = 8 hours Holiday Pay + 7 hours overtime
• October 11, 2016 -Clock in at 7:30, Clock out at 5 = 8 hours regular pay + 2 hours overtime
• October 12, 2016 – CLock in at 7:30, hour for lunch, Clock out at 4:45 = 8 hours regular pay + .75 hrs overtime
• October 13, 2016 – CLock in at 7:20, hour for lunch, Clock out at 5:00 = 8 hours regular pay + 1 hr overtime
• October 14, 2016 – CLock in at 7:20, hour for lunch, Clock out at 4:30 = 8 hours regular pay + .5 hrs overtime
• Total Regular hours =32 hrs @ \$30.00 an hour = \$960.00
• Holiday hours = 8 @ \$30.00 an hour = \$240.00
• Overtime hours = 13.25 @ \$45.00 an hour = \$596.25
• Total = \$1796.25

Our math

• October 9, 2016 – Clock in 2:45, Clock out 4:45 pm = 2 hrs Regular time (nothing in the policy manual points to overtime for a weekend work day as reported on the time card)
• October 10, 2016- Columbus Day Clock in at 6:45 Clock out at 1:30 = 8 hours Holiday Pay + 6.75hours overtime. (Appearently Bob Miller required his own wife to work on Columbus Day)
• October 11, 2016 -Clock in at 7:30, Clock out at 5 = 8 hours regular pay + 1.5 hours overtime
• October 12, 2016 – Clock in at 7:30, hour for lunch, Clock out at 4:45 = 8 hours regular pay + .25hrs overtime
• October 13, 2016 – Clock in at 7:20, hour for lunch, Clock out at 5:00 = 8 hours regular pay + .67hrs overtime
• October 14, 2016 – Clock in at 7:20, hour for lunch, Clock out at 4:30 = 8 hours regular pay + .17hrs overtime
• Total Regular hours =34 @ \$30.00 an hour = \$1020.00
• Holiday hours = 8 @ \$30.00 an hour = \$240.00
• Overtime hours = 9.34 @ 45 an hour = \$420.30
• Total = \$1680.30

Difference in Miller math and our math for one time card = \$115.95  to Anna May Miller’s benefit.

Now I understand there will be a select few that will justify rounding numbers up to the next quarter and they will probably even justify it because it makes the math easier in their mind.

I even suspect those same people will say working on a weekend justifies overtime, even though nothing on that point is in the Policy Manual.

Regardless of the justifications, this is not how public payroll is supposed to be done.

Time worked is time paid.

Rounding up may be considered theft of funds in some legal circles, however, that does not appear to be the case in McHenry County.

For those justifiers, help us understand how a person can record 6.5 hrs of overtime on one time card that only reflect a total of 4 hours clocked in?

One day it records 8 hrs of regular time and 6.5 hrs of overtime yet there is no record of anyone clocking in or out on that day?  (One time card from December of 2013)

Any guess how many time cards have this kind of mathematical anomalies that benefit this employee?

More to come!

Anna May Miller October, 2016, Time Sheet — 22 Comments

1. “No lunch” ?

Her whole damn parasitic career was a free lunch.

Why isn’t she in jail?

2. The average citizen would have been charged and arrested, must be nice!!!!

3. How many of those days was she at the county court house for duties as a County Board Member?

4. I get most have busy lives, but there are close to 90,000 in Algonquin Township.

Why does it take people from four hours away to find this?

Even the ones who are elected missed this?

The payroll people can’t do basic math?

What’s wrong with you people?

5. Manual time cards are crack cocaine to the Public Sector.

Just ask L.A. Firefighter Donn Thompson.

This selfless Public Servant billed taxpayers 9200 hours last year, when there are only 8760 in a year

6. Stephen, great question and we have been working on it for months.

Let’s just say you can’t legally get paid to be in two places at once, nor can you submit mileage for meetings that minutes reflect you were not present.

All of this was provided to the proper authorities months ago so all we can do is expose it because it appears nothing is being done.

I hope I am wrong but this one is pretty clear and so far, crickets.

7. According to the manual Holidays worked are compensated for 1.5 x the pay rate for additional hours worked.

Although this is poorly written and ambiguous.

She was paid 2.5 times for the hours worked at 7 hours.

Shouldn’t that be 1.25 hour of holiday pay and 6.75 at the overtime rate?

8. Holiday, Vacation, and Personal hours count toward regular time.
The hours on the 9th would be OT not regular hours.
She was a hourly not salaried employee.
Cary use to round up to the next half hour till they unionized then it was the next quarter hour.
Early County board meetings I believe were typically on Monday and start at around 08:00.
When I drove bus on Monday and had a 07:00 pickup, I’d see her come in then leave for a meeting before I left for my first pickup, just saying.

9. Stephen, I agree with your analysis and did not go there for certain reasons.

So far I have only found two time cards that are correct.

10. I’m with Ralph. Allen has spent his career writing articles about Algonquin that no one cares about.

Do something or quit whining.

11. “Certain reasons” let’s go with that.

Sounds better than “ I didn’t catch that”.

12. Thanks An American, I guess you are now one of those sad little men you speak of, only a coward because you hide behind an alias.

13. Ralph and Heinrich you sound like the Millers.

We should all care!

And where was Dan Shea the two page hero of the NWH when he was approving Millers junkets and Disneyland trips.

14. Questioning: Do some more research because I have records provided by the county that show she is attending meetings and getting paid mileage.

The link you provided does not show her name but the records I have show otherwise.

15. Questioning, maybe not for that pay period but she had a dual role at some point.

16. Stephen the reason I did not go there is not that we did not catch it.

It is because there are people that are claiming that was the policy so to avoid getting down into the mud with what is or is not appropriate, we simply stuck with presenting the math.

17. Anna Mae was defeated for re-election to the County Board in the March 15, 2016 primary.

Her term of office extended until December of 2016, so in October 2016 she would have been on the Board and would have been Chairman of the Transportation Committee and I believe also served on PHHS.

She routinely left the PHHS meetings at 10 or 10:30 during the 2012 to 2014 term.

This caused massive problems with attempts to fill a large number of vacancies on the Mental Health Board as Paula Yensen often also left early to go to her job in Kane County and Sandra Salgado was almost never there due to her job in Lake County.

At one point, after she and Yensen left, she made a big stink later about the remaining 3 members listening to a presentation by Peter Austin on which no vote was taken as allegedly violating the Open Meetings Act.
