The county also paid 18 employees more than $10,000 each for unused sick and vacation leave. Common Pleas Court manager Charles Beatty received the largest payout: $21,475 in vacation pay and $11,430 in sick leave.

An I-Team investigation this year found the ability to cash out unused sick and vacation leave is a rare perk in the private sector, though local governments are on the hook for tens of millions of dollars worth of these payments.
