(1) Dam­aged Per­son­al Items.  Approved per­son­al items of the employ­ees which are dam­aged pur­suant of the course of their employ­ment while on duty, will be repaired and/or replaced by the employ­er up to an annu­al lim­it of One Hun­dred Dol­lars ($100.00) for watch­es and Three Hun­dred Dol­lars ($300.00) for eye­glass­es.  The Employ­er shall not be respon­si­ble for said repair or replace­ment if the dam­age was due to the employee’s neg­li­gence.  Noth­ing con­tained in this Sec­tion shall restrict the County’s abil­i­ty to pro­hib­it or restrict the use of per­son­al items while on duty.

(2) Immu­niza­tion.  All nec­es­sary immu­niza­tions shall be pro­vid­ed at the employer’s expense.  These immu­niza­tions are lim­it­ed to those nec­es­sary to pro­tect the employ­ee dur­ing the course of employment.

(3) Part-Time Employ­ees.  The Coun­ty reserves the right to employ part-time employ­ees for the pur­pose of main­tain­ing ade­quate staffing lev­els that might be cre­at­ed by hol­i­days, vaca­tions, sick leave, etc.

(4) Sched­ul­ing.  The Direc­tor or his designee shall post a work sched­ule with­in a rea­son­able time pri­or to the ini­ti­a­tion of said work sched­ule.  In no event shall the work sched­ule be post­ed less than forty-eight (48) hours pri­or to the ini­ti­a­tion of the same.  Noth­ing here­in pro­hibits tem­po­rary changes in the sched­ule that might be need­ed because of unfore­seen emer­gen­cies (i.e., injury, ill­ness, res­ig­na­tion, etc.).

(5) Mileage Reim­burse­ment.  Use of a per­­son­al­­ly-owned auto­mo­bile must be autho­rized in advance.  Mileage will be reim­bursed at rates con­sis­tent with Inter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice Guide­lines.  Adjust­ments to the allow­able IRS rates shall become effec­tive on Decem­ber 1 of each year.  The autho­rized mileage allowance includes all oper­at­ing expens­es such as gas, oil, and repairs pre­clud­ing any sep­a­rate claim for such items.
