The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Re: OPEN BAR: It's actually about ethics in fictional bars« on: Today at 05:10:12 pm »
As far as I can see it, the situation is this: my boss is on the take. He uses a work travel card for daily travel, submits overtime for days he doesn't work, puts on a fitness class no-one attends and charges the college for it, doesn't come in for days at a time etc. He gets away with it because his boss does nothing, because he's a tired old man coming up on his retirment. They both get away with it because they don't cause problems for upper management, things keep ticking over and because no-one in upper management inquires, they don't have a clue how badly this place is run.
If my boss starts requesting things like money for outside contractors, he risks rocking the boat. He fears management will start to scrutinise him more thoroughly, and that his benefits and liberties will be curtailed.
But that's just a theory.
