Yes these are real people in real situations :
Drug use
An employee reported late to work several days one week. His supervisor noticed several indicators that might point to substance abuse: The employee's productivity was below standard, he traveled in his company vehicle over 70 miles off his assigned route and out of his service area, and he had lost about 45 pounds in six weeks. The supervisor secured the vehicle and contacted Security. An inspection of the vehicle's interior revealed two homemade smoking devices fashioned out of aluminum foil. A toxicology lab determined the residue in the bowls of the foil pipes was marijuana. Security and the supervisor also found a stack of pornographic material over eight inches thick behind the passenger seat. The employee was the only person to use the vehicle. The employee was dismissed.

No evidence of death
An employee received paid time off to attend the funeral of her half brother. Local management contacted Security when they found no record of the death. Neither local management nor Security found an obituary listed under the half brother's name in any of the area newspapers. Security reviewed a copy of the funeral program that the employee provided. The program did not identify the address or phone number of the church and did not identify a funeral home or a cemetery. Security was unable to locate the church or a death certificate. The employee was unable to put Security in contact with any family member who could confirm her half brother's death or her relationship to him. Information that the employee provided to Security conflicted with information on the funeral program including the time of the service, the names of other family members, and participants in the service. The employee provided no evidence of the death of any relative or of her attendance at a funeral. The employee was dismissed.

and Last But Not Least ........

Mishandling co-workers' funds
An employee collected some money from others in the office for a co-worker who was out on disability. When the co-worker returned to work, one of the others in the office asked her if she received the money from the collection. The co-worker never received the money. The employee who collected the funds said she sent a money order but could not provide any records to support that claim. The employee then changed her story and told her office mates she mailed the co-worker a personal check but could not provide any evidence to support that claim, either. Only after local management called Security to investigate did the employee hand the co-worker a check for the collected funds. The employee was dismissed.
