Philly audit: no consequences for showing up late in half of city departments

Metro/ Rikard Larma

For those of you who have a little trouble getting out of bed in the morning, a new audit by City Controller Alan Butkovitzsuggests an ideal workplace — city government.

Half of the city’s 42 departments lack any policy or consequences for showing up late to work, according to anaudit the controller released Thursday.

There was also lax monitoring of paid time off in ten departments, the audit found.

“These departments are leaving themselves exposed to higher risks for employees to abuse City time by not requiring and enforcing written policies,” Butkovitz said in a statement. “The Finance Director needs to address these issues with management within every agency.”
