Tennessee City Rectifies Overtime Pay Issues with Firefighters

The City of Fayetteville, Tennessee has paid twenty-three current and former city firefighters a total of $92,515 after city officials discovered errors in the way overtime was calculated. City officials acknowledged a “discrepancy” related to firefighter overtime back in August 2018. It appears the city moved quickly to resolve the issue and avoided a protracted and often costly legal battle with city firefighters.

According to the Elk Valley Times, city officials issued checks to the effected firefighters late last month. Click here for more on the story.
