One clown managed to get rid of paid optional overtime for the whole company. He was always signing himself in as working all Saturday, a true Stakhanovite in hours without the results to match. After years of this and some suspicions Management checked CCTV which showed him walking in to his desk to turn on his PC and then walking out to take golf clubs out of the boot of his car and hailing a taxi to the links. Coming back hours later he'd just log off and stroll out. He'd been doing this every saturday for years. Company kept it secret, stopped him from getting any further promotions and just removed paid optional overtime for everyone.

One of the big betting chains had a full company christmas party where the founder would be at a random table to show his man-of-the-people credentials. This seriously rough one allocated the seat next to him showed up while off her biscuit on yokes and drink and just acted like a disgrace all night. He took it surprisingly well and her "career" continued undamaged.

Long time back, I was a chugger (charity mugger/one of those people trying to flog direct debits for charity). Didnt last long at all as didnt buy in to it at all. There was a guy there who every day was hitting top sales numbers/ringing the bell. Was being championed by the managers and even giving talks to the whole group about what worked for him best. He was actually a grand lad, down to earth and good sense of humour from what I call. He was also an ex guard and said he left as he just couldnt deal with the corruption and needed a career change.

Anyway, I left not long into it and bumped into a guy who was there when I was but had also left. Turns out the ex-copper had basically been making up names and credit card details and lobbing them in. By the time, these were submitted to Concern and whatever their processes were, the commission had been paid out. Straight out fraud. Guards were brought in to the office. Wasnt just one or two snuck in each day either, was serious numbers supposedly. Not sure how he thought it was sustainable and not likely to come back on him. Turns out he was also booted from the guards for robbing.

Can find nothing about it online. Would imagine the charity and the 3rd party sales group may have preferred to keep it off radar.

Yep that’s right. I was just in the middle of editing my post.

Back in the early 2000’s I seem to remember. It even got my company down in the south
In fairness there was some crackin dolls in it.

Worked for an insurance company perhaps 15years ago...fella there had a gambling problem but was able to fleece some pension funds of money - over 100k.
He was eventually caught cos he had a plan to win back what he owed and replace the missing money and took a further75k .
Company were afraid of their reputation and repaid the pensions without saying a word.
He was allowed resign and was given a reference.

Ended up moving to one of the so called pillar banks .

Someone took a dump in the work shower.

Had to be closed for 2-days and a deep disinfection carried out.

This is a white-collar workplace BTW where nearly everyone has a 3rd Level Qualification.

The phantom sh;tter was never identified and may still work here.

A man I worked with had a day booked off work. The day he was off we saw on RTE a man with the same name from same place was jailed for distribution of child pornography. It was him alright. He had thought he was going to get a slap on the wrist and he'd just come back to work the next day with nobody any the wiser.

Horrible.

I was let go by the same airline for reporting similar, whilst working as an aircraft cleaner. Lads used to go nuts every time I handed money/goods into lost and found.

Woman(married) ran away with supervisor(single) about 8-10 years her junior. Her husband arrived to the workplace in a bit of a state and ran straight into a glass door, carted off in an ambulance. Never heard how the run away couple fared out afterwards.
