CHICAGO (WBBM) - Two Chicago Public Health Department managers were fired, and two other managers placed on unpaid leave after an Inspector General’s investigation found they allegedly falsified time records.

One deputy commissioner was fired for allegedly not showing up to work on some Fridays and Mondays, and falsifying attendance records to get paid for those days off.

The Public Health commissioner initiated disciplinary action against 21 employees — 17 identified in the Inspector General’s investigation and four others found violating rules in a separate investigation by the Health Department.

Neither the Inspector General’s report, nor a Public Health Department statement offered employee names. No further details of the alleged personnel rule violations were available.
