In the City of Richmond, the Human Resources Department is responsible for, among other things, advertising and filling vacant jobs within the city government.
On Oct. 9, 2018, the city’s director of human resources, Korita Jones, resigned to accept another job.
A few months later, between Jan. 1 and March 31, five relatives of the since-fired chief administrative officer, Selena Cuffee-Glenn, were hired with at least three of them directly arranged for by the city’s director of the Public Works Department, Bobby Vincent Jr.
While he was orchestrating this hiring spree, one department employee claimed and was paid for nearly 2,000 hours of overtime. For reference, a full-time employee working 40 hours per week accrues 2,080 hours over the course of a year.
This was originally published on November 12, 2019. I have not heard of any action taken on this by the mayor or city council.
