LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County School District Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara is speaking out about recent pay issues at the district.
Some CCSD employees say money has been missing from their paychecks for months. The district blamed issues with the new payroll system.
Employees hours were reportedly not routed or approved properly, which led to missing pay.
Dr. Jara says they are rolling out a three step plan to help ease the financial stress of employees.
In a press release to the media he said:
“As our team continues working diligently around the clock to ensure every CCSD employee is getting the pay they have earned and deserve, I want to offer my sincerest apologies. I realize employees need that money now.
“Today, we are rolling out a three-pronged plan in an effort to ease some of the financial stress our Human Capital Management glitches have created for our hard working employees.
“My staff met with payroll approvers to outline the options available to any employee impacted by underpayments in 2020.
“I am thankful to the business and community partners for their understanding and willingness to assist the District and our employees in this difficult time. We are finalizing details of the CCSD-employee assistance programs they will be offering, which may include elimination of late fees and assurance of continued service through our local utility providers.
“I know this will not fix everything, so we are also offering employees who experienced underpayments short-term interest-free financial assistance until we can rectify all pay issues. This will happen immediately.
“I want our employees to know we are committed to rectifying this issue as soon as possible.
“Again, thank you for your patience and your continued commitment to our 320,000 students.”
