Appeals Court Directs Sheriff Hammond To End Pay Disparity Among Sergeants

Sheriff Badge
Appeals Court issues opinion in suit of Hamilton County Sergeants against Sheriff, reported here.


The Tennessee Court of Appeals has directed Sheriff Jim Hammond to equalize pay among sergeants in the department.


The appeals court modified a ruling by  Chancellor Frank Brown, who said the Sheriff's Civil Service Board did not have the authority to set pay.
Sheriff Hammond filed suit after the Civil Service Board ruled in favor of sergeants, who filed a grievance on the pay issue. He said the pay gap was between around $43,000 to around $49,000 and moving all sergeants to the higher rate would cost some $73,000.
