Child protective services workers in New Hampshire could use more overtime pay to address their unusually large caseloads, but a review of payroll data at the Division for Children, Youth and Families reveals that much of the agency’s budget for overtime goes to a small group of supervisors and administrators.
A group of 17 senior DCYF employees, classified as supervisors, administrators or assistant administrators, collected $202,810 in overtime pay in 2018, consuming much of the $290,000 budgeted for those job categories. Half of the $202,810 was collected by just four administrative-level employees.
