DMV Worker Sleeps On The Job For Years
California DMV worker slept 3 hours a day on the job for nearly 4 years
A state Department of Motor Vehicles worker slept at least three hours a day on the job for nearly four years, slowing down processing times in an agency known for its long waits, a state audit said Tuesday.
According to the state auditor’s report, the DMV worker napped at her desk for an estimated 2,200 hours of work time between February 2014 and December 2017, costing the state more than $40,000. The employee’s name was not released.
The employee’s supervisors failed to discipline her, despite noting in her performance evaluations that she routinely slept on the job, the audit said.
In response to the audit, the DMV said it could not take disciplinary action against the employee because her behavior had not been properly documented. A warning was issued to the employee in March that she could be disciplined for future on-the-job naps.
Her supervisors were required to complete additional training, the DMV told auditors.
