A TECHNICAL FIELD representative was fired after he filed fraudulent work claims.

Terry Campbell, who worked for Shaw Cable Systems in British Columbia, had previously been disciplined for a similar incident.

The work done by technical field representatives is reported using a series of codes which serve as the basis of the employee’s wages. On Oct. 19, 2011, Campbell claimed codes for the installation of Internet, telephone and television services.
