  •  Once there was a staff meeting (0+ / 0-)

    where I was forced to accuse (truthfully) co-workers of doing their work off the clock (at home sometimes) just to keep up with the casework.  I was a child abuse investigator in a unit that worked evening and night reports.  The work was complex and difficult.  Sometimes we would be out on cases until 3:00 A.M. then home for a few hours and in court at 8:00 A.M. to explain why we removed children from a home or facility.  I was forced to do so because at times we were assigned up to six cases each afternoon/evening and that was totally unreasonable and impossible.  The supervisor was trying to make a name for herself within the agency.  The high case turnover, on paper, was impressive.
