Wait until the water dept. sees this one. Canadian Court Orders Woman Repay Employer After Spyware Shows She Wasn’t Working. So it looks as if someone decided to get smart and see exactly who's working. We have this from the Guardian and Breitbart.
A Canadian accountant has been ordered by a court to repay her employer after time-tracking software found that she was misrepresenting the hours she worked.
The Guardian reports that Karlee Besse, a Canadian woman, was found by a court to have lied about the number of hours she had worked based on spyware that tracked her activities, and was consequently ordered to pay her former employer, Reach CPA, for “time theft.” Besse, a British Columbian accountant who worked remotely, was fired from her position last year and sought C$5,000 ($3,729) in severance pay and unpaid wages.
The judge also rejected Besse’s claim of wrongful termination at a civil tribunal that was convened to assess the case. She was ordered to pay C$2,459.89 ($1,832.42) in the form of both returned wages and a portion of an earlier advance she had received from the business.
