Pay Discrepancy Between State Report and Employees’ W-2

Restore DeKalb is requesting a grand jury investigation into the pay discrepancies between the salaries reported to the state and employees W-2 if Superintendent Michael Thurmond and/or the DeKalb Board of Education are unable to provide a written logical explanation for the discrepancies. 

 

We will request a grand jury investigation into the discrepancies because the salaries reported on Open Georgia differ from the actual salaries documented on employees’ W-2.  While researching acts of retaliation and intimidation, we discovered the following problems:

  • The salaries reported to the state on Open Georgia differ from the actual salaries reported on the employees’ W-2.
  • The employees have endured acts of intimidation to under report actual hours worked to prevent workers from receiving overtime.
  • The employees’ time schedules are often altered to decrease the time worked without the permission of the employees.

We have compared the W-2 statements of three workers to the information reported to Open Georgia.  The discrepancies are as follows:

1.      Worker 1 – Mary Marshall:

a.      Wages earned in 2010 – $42,724.04 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $45,917.10.  There is a $3,193.06 discrepancy.

b.      Wages earned in 2011 – $35,527.94 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $40,226.77.  There is a $4,698.83 discrepancy.

c.       Wages earned in 2012 – $32,938.89 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $34,558.62.  There is a $1,619.73 discrepancy.

2.      Worker 2 – Tina Jackson:

a.      Wages earned in 2010 – $32,780.29 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $36,415.82.  There is a $3,635.53 discrepancy.

b.      Wages earned in 2011 – $31,715.55 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $34,075.25.  There is a $2,359.70 discrepancy.

c.       Wages earned in 2012 – $32,280.95 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $32,817.36.  There is a $536.41 discrepancy.

3.      Worker 3 – Brenda Lane:

a.      Wages earned in 2010 – $30,103.83 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $33,088.97.  There is a $2,985.14 discrepancy.

b.      Wages earned in 2011 – $29,817.00 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $32,136.00.  There is a $2,319.00 discrepancy.

c.       Wages earned in 2012 – $33,246.44 and wages reported to state (Open Georgia) – $32,516.44.  There is a negative $730.00 discrepancy.

 

v  Worker 1 had a three year total discrepancy of $9,511.62.

v  Worker 2 had a three year total discrepancy of $6,531.64.

v  Worker 3 had a two year total discrepancy of $5,304.14.

Restore DeKalb strive to clarify the reason for these discrepancies.  We request a written explanation within the next ten (10) business days.  If the administration and/or board are unable to provide an explanation, we will request a grand jury investigation and forward these documents to the federal inspector general. 

 

Sincerely,
