Holmes County Commissioners discusses policy during special session

The board also approved of a new and more detailed overtime request form.

“This isn’t for disciplinary purposes,” said Merchant. “This is just for a more detailed account for our records.”

County Commissioner David Whitaker asked if it was within the policy that employees could take their two mandatory 15-minute breaks and combine them with their mandatory 30-minute lunch to create an hour lunch break.

“They’ve got the right to the periods but you’ve also got the right to restrict the times,” said Goodman.

Parish agreed that every district should be in compliance with the contract for the strict 15-minute break in the morning, 30-minute lunch and 15-minute break in the afternoon.

Whitaker also asked if employees should be using county vehicles to get breakfast and lunch.

“Personally I don’t think they should be using county equipment for personal use,” said Parish.
