State audit chides Chester town employee time records

ALBANY – Not all Town of Chester employees used time sheets, vouchers or time cards to record time they actually worked, and an audit by the State Comptroller’s Office said that should be fixed.

The audit also said leave request forms were not used to monitor paid leave of town workers.

Town officials explained the reasoning by saying that most employees have worked at the town for many years and are trusted; that some employees previously submitted documentation but then stopped and this was not questioned by managers; and that employees did not fill out time cards for the hours worked because their hours are set.

Auditors said those practices could result in “an increased risk that employees could be paid for time not worked.”

Town Supervisor Alexander Jamieson responded to the report saying the town has started to implement the recommendations.
