UAPD Resolves Payroll Errors Plaguing Los Angeles Doctors

As of 5-8-09, UAPD has written confirmation from Los Angeles County Payroll and Personnel Services that it will correct the paychecks of Los Angeles County/UCLA doctors who had not received the January 3% increase negotiated by UAPD last year.  Those affected will see the increase on their 5/15/09 paycheck, including the retroactive pay for the last four months.  Dr. Rex Cheng, a UAPD Board member and Harbor UCLA physician, and staff member Jake Baxter worked hard to ensure that the county acknowledged their error, and corrected it quickly.  UCLA doctors can contact the payroll office to learn if they are among those who have been underpaid.
