Last week, REDBROWARD reported how payroll issues resulted in employees of tbe Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) not getting paid. A high-level BSO source told REDBROWARD that Sheriff Gregory Tony (allegedly) proclaimed the employees could wait until the next pay period to get their full paychecks.
Now, an additional source confirms the payroll mishap involves numerous employees of the BSO Fire division. The source says employees have not been paid for “weeks.” The problem allegedly stems from Sheriff Gregory Tony’s consolidation of payroll departments at BSO. The diminished payroll department was not familiar with the processing of BSO Fire paychecks since they follow a regimen different from BSO deputies.
The problems remain and the notoriously thin-skinned Sheriff Gregory Tony appears in no hurry to fix it.
