A worker was fired for time theft after it was discovered he had arranged for a colleague to punch out his time card after he left work early.

Dave Heshka was employed as a millwright by Lafarge Canada in Richmond, B.C. He was a seven-year veteran of the mill when he was fired in August 2012.

The only discipline on his record prior to the events that led to his termination was a verbal warning for using a computer at work when he was not authorized to do so.
