Prison System Employees Charge Maryland is Shorting Their Paychecks

Problems with the state’s new payroll system have kept some prison employees from receiving pay they are due, leaving some short of cash as the holidays approach.

The state’s largest public employee union and Gov. Larry Hogan‘s administration are now arguing over how many workers are affected and how severely.

Patrick Moran, president of AFSCME Council 3, said Wednesday that failures in the state’s Workday computer program have shortchanged employees on base pay and overtime in the Division of Correction over the past four pay periods.
