SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — California jobs records show many full-time state workers are moonlighting with second jobs in the same department.

January state jobs data reveals nearly a dozen state departments have allowed hundreds of employees to hold more than one job.

Some 571 nonunion employees held more than one position this month. Many of them are salaried managers and supervisors who are ineligible for overtime.

The data confirms claims by CalPERS pension officials that the practice is widespread.

CalPERS faced criticism earlier this month for paying hourly wages to salaried employees who did extra work with computer systems and customer service. Officials said the practice wasn’t unique to the retirement system fund.

The Brown administration is taking steps to end the little-known moonlighting practice.
