A hospital employee in Italy has been accused of skipping work on full pay for 15 years, local media report.

The man is alleged to have stopped turning up to work at the Ciaccio hospital in the southern city of Catanzaro in 2005.

He is now being investigated for fraud, extortion and abuse of office, Italian news agency Ansa reports.

He was reportedly paid Ä538,000 (£464,000) in total over the years he is thought not to have been working.

Six managers at the hospital are also being investigated in connection with the alleged absenteeism.

The arrests are the result of a lengthy police investigation into absenteeism and suspected fraud in the Italian public sector.

The employee was a civil servant, and was assigned to a job in the hospital in 2005. It was at this point he stopped going into work, the police said.

The police have also accused him of threatening his manager to stop her from filing a disciplinary report against him.

That manager later retired, police added, and his ongoing absence was never noticed by her successor or human resources.

*the end*

7. I wonder how hard he had to work to avoid going to work?

How did he still get paid?

I'm on salary in my job, but I still have to put my signature on a pay request every two weeks.

14. This one seems to be revenge on Lumbergh and the Bobs.

Does the guy in this story look like Milton?

10. That's nothing.

The person assigned to lubricate the swingarm bearings at the Moto Guzzi factory
has never done a lick of work, and it's been a whole lot longer than fifteen years.

12. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Sounds like HRís problem not his. With the exception of the alleged threat of course.

13. A better movie ending would be him retiring and the hospital throwing him a retirement party

where everyone is driven by politeness so they pretend to know him and he pretends he knows them. Gets a gold watch and a pension and drives off in the sunset.

Laughing all the way.

I know I'm expected to be outraged but I'm just not.

15. i was almost going to take his side...

on the ground that if they were so incompetent they didn't realize he was getting paid for 15 years, then that is their fault, not his. Then i read that he threatened the manager. the manager was probably too scared to take him off the payroll.

17. Depends what he threatened that manager with.

Maybe she was playing the system too, and the threat was merely that he'd keep her secret if she kept his.

Still sleazy, but not so bad as threatening someone innocent with violence.
