Recommendation #11 To: Air Resources Board, State
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) should recoup or correct all overpayments made to the employee we determined to have take inappropriate bereavement leave.
Agency Response From February 2020
In January 2020, ARB informed us that it agreed with our recommendation and that it planned to recoup or correct the overpayment for Employee B. The following month, ARB reported and provided evidence that Employee B used another leave category to account for the 8 hours of improper bereavement leave use.
