EMPLOYEE RESIGNS FOLLOWING INVESTIGATION INTO ABUSE OF COVID LEAVE
An Amtrak service attendant based in Seattle resigned from his position on August 17, 2022, as a result of our investigation into his alleged abuse of COVID-19 Leave. Our investigation found that the employee was placed on COVID-19 Leave on July 8, 2022, a type of leave that is granted for a 5-day period. However, the employee failed to produce proof of a COVID-19 diagnosis, as required by the company, and remained away from work for 30 days. Our investigation found that the employee was working as a travel advisor for a travel agency at the time of his resignation.
