TO: FROM: RE:

Larry Kelley Kathryn Mazur, Director of Human Resources Settlement/Separation Agreements over Five-Year Period

I prepared the following chart of settlement agreements, excluding the agreement with Alberto Rodriguez, in accordance with your request. These thirteen settlements occurred over the past five years. You will see that some include financial settlements and others have no financial arrangement, other than to not challenge an application (if submitted) for unemployment benefits. Instances in which vacation or sick leave accrual were provided are contractual. Vacation is paid out on a per-diem basis. The one instance in which sick leave was paid out (Employee #7), was at a rate of $25/day (51.25 accrued days). Employee Settlement Amount 1 2 3 $0 $1,500.00 $40,000.00 Health Insurance Extension None None None Vacation Accrual None 5,274.66 Included in total settlement amount None None 3,765.35 $13,648.74 None $9,360.00 Sick Leave Accrual None None None Unemployme nt Claim No protest Not applicable No protest
