Wilkes-Barre: Officials in a north-eastern Pennsylvania county say they've fired an employee who went on vacation and held up pay-checks for about 1,200 government workers.

Budget and policy analyst Jason Parrish was fired on Monday after Luzerne County officials say he failed to approve an electronic transfer required for employees to get paid on Black Friday. Parrish told The Citizens' Voice newspaper in Wilkes-Barre that the pay lapse was an accident. He declined comment when asked if his dismissal was justified.

County officials say they started correcting the error Friday afternoon, but some employees say they weren't paid until Monday. County Manager Robert Lawton has apologized. Union president Paula Schnelly says they'll file a grievance if officials don't keep a promise to cover overdraft and other fees caused by the error.
