(WOIO) - I am Tom Gregorich responding to Bill Applegate's Editorial about double dipping.
I do not agree with a government policy allowing "double dipping" for several reasons: first, compensation of drawing a pension and a salary for the same job is more costly to the taxpayers of Ohio; second, equity problems are created with other employees in similar positions because the double dippers total compensation exceeds that of their peers; third, career advancement possibilities are blocked for employees in lower level positions trying to progress; and the opportunity for a new hire is lost.
The occurrence of double dipping indicates poor management planning. Management needs to develop succession planning to prepare qualified employees to move up, which can create a domino effect up the line until a position on the entry level is opened and filled.
This is less costly, leads to improved employee satisfaction and contributes to a fresh, innovative environment.
It results in a win/win scenario for all stakeholders.
