For those of you who read part 1 of this, he was fired. For those who didn’t, I worked with someone who was fabricating/falsifying his sales numbers every week, for a very long time. We worked on the honor system in my department for a long time, and this coworker would modify the database to show sales numbers that were fictitious. The company put software in place last month, and his unethical behavior was found out…
Ok, so mgmt talked to him, sternly…gave him a warning. So, in looking at our sales numbers last week, something seemed really strange to me. Like unusually high numbers…what he started doing since he was ‘discovered’ was trying to find a way around the new software. Ugh, not sure why he was so foolish, the company was giving him a second chance! :(:shrug:
ANYWAYS…he was fired today. I was not happy about his behavior, he was very toxic to our department–but feel badly for someone who is fired in this economy, especially he is in his late 50’s, and will be competing with people half his age, who will work for much less.
Just wanted to provide you with an update…many of you thought he should be fired, well, he was.
