You Paid For It: State Overtime

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

ALBANY -- Overtime costs are on the rise in New York State government, according to Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. 
DiNapoli said that overtime pay in state agencies rose 11% last year, and is now up to $529 million.  That translates to 14 1/2 million hours of overtime.
Three state agencies that operate institutional facilities accounted for two-thirds of all state overtime: OPWDD, Mental Health, and Corrections.
CBS6's Greg Floyd asked DiNapoli on Tuesday if a lot of the overtime is because staff cuts mean that remaining workers in places like prisons and hospitals have to pick up the slack.  DiNapoli said, in part, yes, but that agencies still need to
look carefully at their staffing levels and work schedules to see if they can
find ways to reduce the need for overtime.
The NYS Division of Budget
released a statement tonight saying that overall payroll spending is down since
Governor Andrew Cuomo took office.
