Md. Panel Looking Into Corrections Workers' Payroll Glitch

WASHINGTON — A Maryland legislative panel will meet next week to try to get to the bottom of a payroll glitch that left a number of state corrections workers with smaller-than-normal paychecks right before the holidays.

More than 1,000 complaints from state workers led Maryland Senate President Mike Miller to announce the formation of the Paycheck Recovery Commission.

The lawmakers, led by Sen. Thomas “Mac” Middleton, will investigate whether the rollout of a new payroll system was at fault.

State employees in the corrections division were affected. Gary McLhinney, director of professional standards in the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, said in December that while the problem was a serious one, it affected a fraction of the more than 10,000 employees in the system.

The first meeting of the commission is slated for Monday.
