Regulation on Reporting for Elected and Appointed Officials

Correctly reporting the number of days worked during a reporting period helps ensure the benefits your employees receive are accurate. But, since elected and appointed officials usually do not work a fixed schedule or have preset hours, determining the number of days they’ve worked requires a different process.

Without a standard work day, you cannot determine the correct number of days worked to report for an official. Since retirement benefits are based in part on service credit, correctly reporting the number of days these members work during a reporting period helps ensure the benefits they receive are accurate.

The Erie County Legislature establishes standard work days for your elected and appointed officials by adopting a resolution.

The Standard Work Day and Reporting Resolution must be adopted at the first regular meeting held after the first 180 days of taking office, or whenever a new elected or appointed office is established.  This resolution must be filed with the Office of the State Comptroller within 45 days of adoption.

Additionally, the resolution must be posted on the public website for at least 30 days; if there is a current resolution, view it HERE. (If "HERE" is an inactive link, then there is no current Standard Work Day Resolution to view.)
