Dear Oakland County Deputy Sheriff’s Association Union Members:

 Words cannot express our sincere gratitude for your work on the front lines. We truly appreciate your commitment to our residents and this organization. As you know Governor Gretchen Whitmer extended the Stay Safe Stay Home Order from April 14 to April 30, 2020. We are committed to continuing hazard pay during this time period.

 When we originally started hazard pay for this pandemic, I don’t think anyone expected the depth of this illness and the length of time we would be under this order. In our effort to continue to provide hazard pay, we lowered hazard pay slightly from time and a half to time and one third as we navigate the financial impact that this pandemic is having on more than personnel. Clearly, we are in a marathon and not a sprint and we continue to support your commitment on the front lines.

 To align more with the payroll schedule you will see your hazard pay move from 1.5 per hour to 1.35 per hour on April 11, 2020, but we will extend the hazard pay until May 2, 2020 to make up for the three days that should have been at 1.50.

 Again, thank you and I wish you and your families continued health. You are the reason we are Oakland Together!


 April M. Lynch
