The Southfield Civil Service Commission has amended its regulations to allow Jewish personnel to take time off for religious observances without loss of pay. The change was approved after representations by the local Jewish Community Council.
Personnel previously were required to work overtime or lose pay for absences other than on legal holidays. They may now use for religious absences two days paid annual leave for personal purposes.
