Co worker fiddling time sheets

(4 Posts)

We are government funded and all expenditure is recorded, including stqff time sheets. The company requires that all staff sign time sheets each week.

Most staff work regular hours, but a handful of us have agreements for flexible hours.

The person I work closely with has a flexible hours agreement but abuses it horribly.
I suspected this for months because her output is so low, but never thought more about it. But during the past two weeks I have become aware that she is blatantly lying. She records hours of 7am-5pm but works 9/9.30ish-3/3.30ish.

I became aware of this when twice she arrived after me (I start at 9) yet recorded 7am and twice left before me.

She has also correctly recorded her child's arrival time as 9am on these days (we have onsite childcare) as she is billed for care time. So her own paperwork outs her.

The problem is that she is great friends with the CEO so if I raised this issue the CEO would either cover it up or somehow make life difficult for me. I have spolen to our site manager who agrees it is no good but has not taken action. She is I suspect fearful of the CEO.

We do have a much larger parent company, however.

How should I raise this?

I am fed up with having to cover for her by helping her catch up when she works short hours yet claims full hours.

find the whistleblowing policy and follow it. as you written it's gross misconduct.

Has her 'low' output not been questioned yet ? I assuming she's not meeting her targets, surely higher ups must notice this, even if she is friends with the CEO?
Yeah def have a look for any whistleblowing policy.
