Staffing scrutiny for CCA in Idaho

The Gem State continues to be a source of headaches for Corrections Corp. of America, which has managed the Idaho Correctional Center for more than 10 years. A recent state audit seems to suggest that the company is not following the rules of its contract, specifically when it comes to staffing. Among the issues brought to light have been inconsistencies between staffing logs and overtime documents.

For instance, during a pay period spanning late April and early May of 2012, CCA reported on its overtime report that one guard worked 111 hours — just under the 112 maximum. But the staff report for the same period shows that guard working about 123 hours. Another guard was listed as working 112 hours on the overtime report during the same pay period, compared with the nearly 130 hours that the guard worked according to the staff report.
