Now Ex-City Attorney Apparently Unhappy With Withholding On Severance Pay

Although the City of Lodi honored its commitment to pay 6 months severance following his termination, the former City Attorney was unhappy that taxes were withheld, and has filed a claim. Quoted in the Lodi News-Sentinelstory the City Manager said, ""We also called our attorneys and the IRS, and all three said we have to withhold taxes. I'm not doing it to annoy him. I'm doing it because it's the law." But if he got a small chuckle out of annoying him, he would not be the first employer to have smiled at least inwardly when it happened.
