For four years, a DMV worker was taking 3-hour naps per shift. The employee is a data operator responsible for updating information on address changes and new vehicle ownership forms. Someone in this position is typically supposed to work on about 560 documents a day, but this worker only did about 200 that was filled with errors, leaving other coworkers to pick up the slack.
The snoozing data operator slept a total of 2,200 hours from 2014-2017, costing California tax payers more than $40,000. The supervisor didn’t take action properly so the sleeping employee won’t be fired or face charges, the supervisor may.
