This program gives sentenced inmates the opportunity to maintain their current employment or obtain employment
(with jail approval) while incarcerated. The inmates must pay the County a set fee per day to have that privilege.
If you have Huber status, and are gainfully employed, you will need to bring $105.00 cash at the time you check in;
with $90.00 being a deposit and $15.00 for a Urinalysis fee. In addition, Huber fees are $15.00 per day worked. The
$90.00 deposit will be returned to you at your release date or it can be applied toward your final Huber payment.
If working outside Becker County and/or are self-employed, in addition to the above fees, GPS may be required at
the discretion of the program staff. This will require a second $90.00 deposit plus $15.00 per day (And a minimum
payment of $75.00 per week) while out on Huber. Like the Huber deposit, your GPS deposit will be returned to you at
your release or applied toward final GPS fees.
*Huber fees are collected for the month prior on the first of each month or the evening before your release
(whichever occurs first). GPS fees are collected weekly or the day prior to release; whichever occurs first. All fees
are collected out of your inmate account, cash only. It is your responsibility to insure funds are in your inmate
account prior to collection dates. If you do not have adequate funds in your inmate account when these payments are
due, Huber Status will be revoked until payment is received in full.
When you report the Minimum Security Facility (males) or the Maximum Facility (females), you will bring your job
schedule. After being booked in, staff will verify your job information. Inmates granted
Huber are allowed one (1) full time job or two (2*) part time jobs not to exceed daily and hourly limits. (* with prior approval of the program staff) Once this
is accomplished, you must take – and pass a Urinalysis test. If the Urinalysis is a 'fail', you must wait 5 days
before retesting. Once a negative result is achieved on the Urinalysis and additional paperwork is completed, you
will be cleared for Huber release.
The normal work week consists of a 40 hour week. However, Huber-approved inmates with verified employment may be
allowed out of the jail for work a maximum of 60 hours per week; which will include travel time. Any deviations from
your approved schedule must be prior approved by the jail program staff. If your job requires you to work more than
60 hours per week, (including travel time) you must provide documentation verifying your need to work longer hours than what jail policy
states to the courts and have it approved by the judge at your sentencing.
You must provide the jail with a copy of your driver's license and vehicle insurance card. If you are not a valid
driver, you are not using public transportation and your employment is not within a 'walkable' distance, you must provide the jail with a copy of the driver's
license and vehicle insurance card for each person you will be receiving a ride from; verifying the individual(s) as
a valid driver. This information will be given at the time you report to jail.
At the time of reporting, you will receive the Huber Policy and U.A. Policy to read and sign off from before being
allowed out for work. You are entitled to a copy of these rules as you will be held accountable for them. Not
following these rules will result in violation of the program with possible termination of Huber Status and privileges.
If you are on any medication, understand that there are some that have been known to cause a false positive on a
Urinalysis. If you take any medication other than Ibuprofen or acetaminophen, you may want to consult with your
physician or pharmacist prior to serving your sentence, because a false positive test will have to be sent in, at
your expense, and you will not be able to go out for Work Release until you have a negative test.
Huber inmates are fiscally responsible for their medication and medical appointments. Any out of state appointments
must be prior approved by program staff and you must sign a waiver of extradition.
