I work as a manager in construction. One of those responsibilities is to code invoices meaning for every job that is done there is a specific budget for that job. When I code the invoice I have to write down one sentence of what work was done and what phase of construction it went to. My question is if I have extra money in other areas of my budget is it lying to use it? For example, I may have $100 for my trim carpenter. However, I spent $120 dollars. Therefore, I code the $20 differential to a different phase.
This practice is discouraged. If you leave detailed notes on what was done supevisors dont have a problem with it. The majority of the guys, if not all of them, just use the extra money they have even if it they’re not being 100% honest about the work. In my opinion as long as I’m making sure everyone is getting paid for the work they’re doing it is ok. However I want to make sure I’m not in the wrong morally.
I can try to better explain if need be. Somewhat difficult to explain and keep relatively short.
