San Juan – The Comptroller’s Office of Puerto Rico published this Monday, the result of the investigation of a complaint related to the assistance of an electrician employed by the Municipality of Lajas.
The complaint alleges that, during working hours, he has visited the commercial office of the Electric Power Authority (PREPA) to deliver certifications of electrical installations that he has made to private persons.
The investigation reveals that, on 12 occasions, from October 2018 to November 2019, the electrician delivered certifications of electrical installations during working hours at PREPA’s offices at the La Quinta Shopping Center in San Germán.
Attendance at work in the Municipality for those days does not reflect license records, nor does it have annotations about unauthorized absences or discounts on your pay.
This situation is contrary to the Internal Regulations on Working Hours and Attendance.
The investigation recommends that the mayor instruct the staff of the Human Resources Office to take the corresponding disciplinary actions.
The Result of the Investigation dated February 22, 2021, is available at www.ocpr.gov.pr.
