Bad audit

I read the article about the Fort Worth schools audit and it sickened me.

I have never had an employer who would have let someone get away with stealing and I bet very few readers have either. These employees apparently have no problem with stealing.

The article actually talks about one individual who was “reprimanded” in 2009, and yet they found that she continued to misuse payroll records and that the changes to her time card were made using another employee’s password after that employee had clocked out. Where is the oversight?

The employees might benefit from some training on protecting their passwords, unless of coursethey are in on it.

This is taxpayer money.

Sadly this will likely be like so many of the other discoveries that are made: It will get buried and we will never hear another word about it. It is a crime!
