TIME HAS FINALLY caught up to a nurse in British Columbia who was fudging timekeeping records.

Parveen Gill, a licensed practical nurse, had worked at four worksites under the Fraser Health Authority before she was fired for falsifying her reporting time. She was employed on a casual and part-time basis at the Chilliwack General Hospital and Valley Home Support facility when she successfully applied to be a licensing officer at one of the operations in Delta, B.C. Working simultaneously at those three worksites meant she was covered by three collective agreements.

When interviewing for the licensing officer position, Gill mentioned the possibility of work on weekends, and her interviewer said it would be fine — as long as it did not interfere with her role and duties as a licensing officer.
