Side Business on Company Business Time – Case 1

Many years ago, the team leader for a group of database administrators managed the work assignments for the team and had to track the progress of their tasks. One of the DBAs consistently had difficulty completing her work by the target dates. The team manager wondered what the issue might be until he started to notice some extracurricular activity in the workplace.

There were excessive phone calls being made and received by this person. She would disappear for hours at a time during the day. The manager would head out to visit some of the IT customers or go to a seminar and run into this person in the parking lot coming in or going out at odd times during the day.

The team manager subsequently discovered, from someone who interfaced with this employee outside of work, that she was running her own database administration consulting business from the company facilities. She was fired immediately for this unacceptable use of company facilities, systems, and instruments.
