TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Workers at the North Jersey Planning
Authority get the week off between Christmas and New Year’s.
That’s one of the things that New Jersey’s Inspector General’s
Office found when it examined more than 50 independent authorities
around the state.
The agencies manage or borrow (b) billions of dollars.
An analysis found employees at the independent agencies, in many
cases, receive more vacation or sick days than other state workers.
In a report released yesterday, the inspector general
recommended revising policies where feasible to provide uniformity
with state public workers.
