OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City County Health Department is under fire after a recent audit shows employees claimed hours worked at two different health departments.

The 42 page audit by the State Auditor and Inspectors offices shows employees working full-time at the Tulsa Health Department and also logged hours at the OCCHD.

However, the audit shows time sheets at both places were filled out for the same hours. The audit also shows on several occasion an employee in Tulsa used a sick day to come work at the OCCHD.

The audit points out nearly a dozen of these discrepancies.

"I think we are going to very diligent about dual employees," said OCCHD Deputy Director Bob Jamison.

The Human Resources Manager from Tulsa and a Grant Writer are accused in the audit. Both are now working full time for the OCCHD and do not work for the Tulsa Health Department anymore.

Jamison says both employees disagree with the findings of the audit. The two made around $20,000 for their hours in Oklahoma City.

No word on whether they will be asked to pay that money back.

"I don't think at this point that's been fully decided," Jamison said.
