A new audit of the UW System shows concerns about sick leave policies and possible abuses.
State Rep. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) says the review turned up some incredible abuses, especially in the accumulation of unused sick leave. He says it's ridiculous that the average faculty member retires with 200-thousand-dollars worth of unused sick leave. Nass believes the review shows some faculty aren't reporting sick leave, in order to cash it in when they retire. And he says the legislature will have to order changes.
