A foreman not only left early during a shift but he forged time sheets for another employee who also left early, triggering a termination.

Extra gang foreman, identified as “K. Mardon” of Mission, B.C., worked for Canadian Pacific (CP) on Feb. 16, 2018, on a shift that began at 7 p.m. and was scheduled to end at 6:25 a.m. the following day.

Supervisor Roy O’Handley had a “trouble call” at 4:40 a.m. that required the assistance of Mardon and fellow employee Chad Brown, who was managed by Mardon. O’Handley sent a crew to the tool house to collect Mardon and Brown at 5 a.m., but they were not there.
