The Jailer in Scott County granted promotions and pay raises to several of his deputy jailers, based on the good job they were doing and the increased responsibilities they had each assumed. The raises kept the Jailer's payroll budget within the amount previously authorized and approved by the Scott County Fiscal Court. But the Fiscal Court refused to process the raises which had the effect of overruling the Jailer with regard to the raises.
Does a county Fiscal Court have the authority to overrule the Jailer concerning raises granted to deputy jailers where the raises will keep the Jailer's payroll budget within the sum approved by the Fiscal Court? The deputy jailers have filed suit against the Scott County Fiscal Court to get paid their raises, the money they have earned. Read the complaint.
