“The News reported Monday that hundreds of correction officers across 2021 and 2022 have violated DOC’s sick leave rules and tried to duck efforts by investigators to hold them accountable. The story cited examples of officers working a second job while out sick for hundreds of days, or out of town when they were supposed to be home. Some even screamed at investigators.
Councilwoman Gale Brewer directly asked Molina about The News’ article. “What is it that will break the cycle of people just feeling they just don’t have to be there? It is hard to understand, particularly when you read an article like that,” she said.”
