Yolo County Hires Ombuds

Yolo County, California, has hired Harrison Jack a college professor and veteran as an ombudsman for the county's 1,600 workers. Jack will be paid $90/hour as an outside consultant. There is some ambiguity as to whether this is a classical or organizational ombuds; the job description is ambiguous and requires membership in the State Bar or USOA or IOA.

  1. Yolo thinks its "the first county in the state to offer the service to workers." Really? Guess they overlooked the ombuds for LA County workers.
