The former executive director of the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission was paid but failed to show up for work an average of 11 days a month, resulting in her being overpaid by at least $42,000 in salary and benefits over a 14-month span, according to a state audit released Wednesday.
“While our analysis only covered 14 months, multiple agency staff indicated the director’s absenteeism had been an issue for the length of her tenure at the agency, so in reality the overpayment may be higher,” auditors said.
Charla Slabotsky served as the agency’s executive director from Feb. 11, 2013, to Dec. 12, 2018. She resigned suddenly in December after commissioners called a hasty meeting to review “urgent information” that the Oklahoma Auditor & Inspector’s Office had uncovered during the course of an audit.
Slabotsky’s annual salary plus benefits for the audited 14-month period was $111,528, auditors said.
