Pre hearing information

Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on various dates between December 2016 and May 2017, Dr Duffy submitted timesheets in respect of hours worked, and travelsheets for journeys travelled in connection with his employment, when he had not worked the hours claimed or undertaken the journeys.

 

It is further alleged that Dr Duffy submitted timesheets purporting to have been signed by Dr A as authorisation of the hours work when in fact Dr Duffy had forged the signature on the timesheets. It is alleged that Dr Duffy’s conduct was dishonest.
