NY State Employees Paid For Working Two Jobs At The Same Time

Can you be at two places at once, working two jobs at the same time? No? Neither can I. Apparently, only state employees are able to do that, or at least get paid for doing that.

Seventy-five state employees were found to be regularly violating time and attendance policies to work two public jobs at the same time, according to state Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

These employees cost taxpayers $413,277 for the 4,803 hours they claimed, but did not work, DiNapoli announced Thursday. Employees falsified timesheets, abused sick leave and misrepresented travel time from one job to another, officials reported.

Read the whole thing. Those results were found from auditing only 6 state agencies. Just think what they’d find if they audit all of them.
