Audit Committee wants to know more about state employee sick leave abuses
The Legislature's Audit Committee wants to know more about who's abusing the state employees' sick leave system, and why.
The panel held a hearing Thursday, after learning that the average state worker takes 65 hours a sick leave per year.
That's a week and a-half. Panel co-chairman Sen. Jim Sullivan, D-Wauwatosa, says he hasn't used that much sick leave in his whole working life.
