PHOENIX - We are learning new information about the Arizona Child Protective Services employees who were recently placed on paid administrative leave.
Department of Economic Security Director Clarence Carter made the decision to place five CPS supervisors on leave pending the results of an investigation into thousands of cases ignored by CPS .
These letters, dated Dec. 2, placed five top level staff who had major involvement with the team that labeled over 6,500 cases as "Not Investigated" on leave until further notice.
In the letter , employees were instructed to call in every day between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
According to the letter, the workers cannot leave their homes during business hours, unless it is for a one hour lunch break. If they do leave, they must get approval to use sick or vacation time.
If the employees don't comply with the rules, they could reportedly be disciplined.
The workers will remain on leave pending the completion of the Department of Public Safety investigation into any wrongdoing.
