Buffalo, New York - Mayor Byron Brown today announced several measures regarding how City officials track employees who are placed on paid leave status.

Starting next week, Mayor Brown has directed the Department of Administration and Finance to generate a bi- weekly report to be distributed to all department heads that have employees on leave.

Additionally, a comprehensive report encompassing all employees on paid administrative leave and other leave categories will be generated and sent to required city departments including the Corporation Counsel, Management and Information Systems (MIS), Audit and Control and the Department of Human Resources. This broader report is designed to facilitate a more centralized oversight and coordination of workforce data involving the departments.

Mayor Brown said, “I believe the situation involving the one employee was and is an isolated case. To make sure it doesn’t happen again I’ve instituted a number of safeguards going forward. These measures will create both a more efficient and centralized reporting system”.

Also, Mayor Brown announced that the MIS Department is in the process of updating its Payroll Software System. The updated software will include enhanced reporting, auditing and notification systems.

Department Heads will also work to remove employees from paid leave status as soon as possible. The Department of Human Resources will be responsible for certifying departmental leave reports.

These new policy measures will be effective the week of October 9th.
