A lawsuit filed against the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office by current and former deputies over pay raises has been dismissed.
About 40 employees filed the suit in federal court late in 2012, claiming that a salary schedule used as a recruitment tool was essentially a guarantee of future raises. The employees sued for back wages and overtime starting in 2012.
Yet in his ruling Jan. 13, Judge Wiley Daniel said the deputies were at-will employees and that the pay schedule posted by the sheriff was a promise, not a contract.
