More Metro employees slated to be "at-will"
Policy change to enhance safety efforts
The Metro Board of Directors today, Feb. 25, approved to expand the number of “at-will” employees as part of a larger effort to improve safety.
At-will Metro employment may be terminated at any time with or without cause by either Metro or the employee. The decision to extend the number of at-will employees from 75 to 253 is meant to increase accountability across all levels of management and supervision for the safety of employees and riders.
Previously, the at-will policy applied only to Metro senior and executive management, typically employees at the director level and above. The measure now will include all mid-level supervisors, such as superintendants and front-line supervisors.
