City Workers Fired For Missing Work, Lying About Hours

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.

    It’s about time… Now why don’t you watch the rest of them and fire them all. They are costing us tax payers way too much money.

  • Mike Leahy

    Charlie has it right. Municipal workers have been stealing money from the tax payers forever. You could cut the public works dept. budget in half and still get the work done. And so it goes. The more things change…….the more they stay the same.

    HA HA!! I enjoy seeing people who get fired for not doing the job they are being paid to do. It’s a job people, that means you WORK at it everyday, not just get the title and then stay home.

    Guess he’s going to get to stay home all he wants now! Good luck finding another job after everyone reads this and learns how strong his work ethic is. :))))))

    Seeing that the positions about which they are reporting are not union positions, it certainly is not the excuse given to the one with the obscene login.

    It’s not just Illinois. You see this sort of thing happening all over North America.
