EMPLOYEE RESIGNS AFTER ENGAGING IN OUTSIDE EMPLOYMENT WHILE ON FMLA LEAVE
An Amtrak electrician in Chicago, Illinois, resigned from employment on April 14, 2020, following our investigation which revealed the employee violated company policies by establishing a business and using it to engage in fraudulent credit card schemes for personal gain during a portion of his continuous FMLA leave. The employee admitted that he used the proceeds from his business-related fraud scheme to travel and party. Further, he was initially dishonest with our agents when asked about his conduct. Criminal judicial proceedings are pending.
