City hall staff face indictment for skipping work in Sicily

Modica, November 21 - Prosecutors in Sicily have called to indict 106 employees at the city hall of Modica for not showing up to work and cheating on their time cards. The suspects, who account for 85% of the building's entire staff, were allegedly caught doing things such as tampering with the time clock, requesting overtime while out at the beauty salon and listening to music for hours in a parked car on company time. Last year a judge rejected prosecutors' requests to place 86 of the same employees under house arrest for absenteeism. According to police, evidence includes 52 DVDs of hidden-camera footage showing workers skipping work with the help of co-workers who would punch their time cards for them. The municipality of Modica has requested to be an injured party in the case.
