Metro: Supervisor Fired for Abuse of Overtime

Metro says that a supervisor has been fired for abuse of overtime and that others are under administrative review.

Metro made the announcement in a statement Friday. It did not include the supervisor's name or say how much the person had been paid in overtime.

Metro said the supervisor violated policy and ``accessed significant overtime earnings, including during times when he was not working.'' Metro said it couldn't release additional details because of an ongoing investigation.

In a statement, Metro general manager Paul J. Wiedefeld said it is ``disturbing and disappointing that any employee would misuse overtime.''

Metro says the administrative review was prompted by an interim report from Metro's Office of Inspector General, which is conducting an ongoing investigation into overtime fraud.
