Don’t let the door hit you…
As a current state employee, I am wondering if state Sen. [Paul] Stanley will be treated the same as other state employees who leave service under scrutinized terms.
As a state employee, I work for the citizens of Tennessee, just like the legislators who were elected into office and their salaries are paid for by tax dollars. If an employee does leave under circumstances that are not in the best interest of the employer and make the employee look incompetent, then the employee loses all sick time, vacation and comp time accumulated during their years of service.
Since Stanley is leaving under these type conditions I do hope he is treated the same as a employee that is literally fired and not under a rehire rights type provision placed in their file. He does deserve the pension as all employees who have five years government service earn and is totally within their legal right to process and receive the benefits due him.
So, I do hope that he is being treated just as any other employee who works for the state and is not given preferential treatment due to his rank in and of government service. He gets his pension but paychecks stop the next pay period after his resignation and not after burning accumulated leave time.
