Allegations of social workers working without pay launches investigation in Onondaga County

An investigation into whether social workers for Onondaga County have been being paid for all their hours is being conducted.

Justin Sayles, Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon’s spokesman, tells Syracuse.com that the investigation is looking at 40 workers working for the Department of Children and Family Services.

Allegations were made that staff worked without being paid, but Sayles says no overtime request was denied in the last year.


Workers have made it clear that the organization is understaffed and overworked.

Findings will likely be reported in the next few weeks.
