    My coworker constantly lies about the time he has actually worked. He'll write in a few extra minutes when he hasn't. He'll also do other things like wait for the supervisor to leave the area before swiping out.

    I haven't notified my supervisor about it. Should I?

    This might not be a popular opinion but I always felt...

    You don't mess with another man's money.

    It's not your job to catch him. You're not a detective, you're not a supe. Mind your business and do your job. Trust me he will be caught soon enough. PT supes love to gossip. Everyone in the building will know you were the rat before the week is up. Also after you rat he still might not lose his job and I'm sure he will hold a grudge.

    Why don't you confront the person doing it, instead of a supervisor?

    IMO, the only time you should tell what you know is if it's going to effect you and your money or if they are a danger to those around them. The rest of the time, it ain't my business. image.jpg

    Just worry about yourself. Survival at UPS is CYA not cover your buddies a**. People like that will eventually get nailed.

    Worry more about management shaving time from hourly employees. They do it all the time!

    That is the heart of it right there. When he/she is caught, it will be for theft, he/she will be fired and will not get his/her job back. Do not even say anything to the offender or you may be accused of telling the supes about it.

    He'll get caught eventually.

    Don't rat him out though. Whether or not it's the right thing to do it doesn't matter. You're gonna get tagged as "that guy" by your coworkers.

    Agree with this, eventually he'll slip up. Noone is as smart as they think they are.

    When a sup gets told he needs to crack down on his numbers he will get caught. He/She is going to notice that he worked longer than he actually did.
