The Fact of The Matter has obtained an additional list of Westfield DPW workers names and time clock ID numbers involved in what has been described as a routine scam into alleged theft of overtime.
TFoTM previously reported on the alleged theft and included a picture of a list of employees involved in the scam. (See previous blog story.). That list of names appears on the same stationary for an auto glass company.
The alleged scam would be perpetrated by one DPW employee coming into work early or leaving work late. The employee would enter the ID numbers on the list, into the digital timeclock at the DPW, clocking other employees into or out of work that were not actually present at that time.
This alleged overtime scam bilked thousands of dollars in O.T. which ultimately cost taxpayers.
The additional photo obtained by TFoTM has been redacted to remove employee names.
Westfield town officials were made aware of the alleged thefts months ago.
