From the NY Post:
One of the city's top overtime earners was bounced from his job 11 months ago -- but continues to collect his $57,000-plus annual salary while on extended sick leave, The Post has learned.
Moustafa Fawzy, the Department of Environmental Protection's director of hazardous materials, called in sick immediately after he was demoted on Jan. 21.
Officials said Fawzy had accumulated 46½ weeks of unused sick, comp and vacation days under the city's generous policies, enough to keep him on the payroll -- without his having to report to work -- until Dec. 16.
As a 21-year employee, Fawzy was entitled to 12 annual sick days that could be carried over year after year.
His medical condition wasn't disclosed.
