Q May a full-time county solid waste clerk also serve as a part-time county youth court administrator?

A While Section 25-4-105(3)(a) prohibits a county employee from holding two separate employment positions with the same county and receiving separate compensation for each position, one may accept additional duties and receive additional compensation without violating the statute if compensated with only one paycheck pursuant to one contract of employment.
