State Balks at Bowling for Dollars Gambit

A group of contractors and state employees went bowling on the clock, expecting to be paid for their time. The state isn’t buying it.

Fact Finders uncovered the issue. It happened at the Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln last week.

Department of Health and Human Services officials say they did not know about or approve the plan.

The first hour of the gathering was related to off-site activities directly involving work. That's been okayed but the two hours of bowling that followed have been flagged.

Employees have been told they need to change the recreational hours to vacation or unpaid time on their time cards.

We're told the supervisor got the idea from working in the private sector. He was told not to do it again.
