The lies employees tell to get out of work can be elaborate, but perhaps it is time to dig deeper and look at why an employee may have resorted to such untruths.

    I know of someone who got "married" while on a weeks leave, even though no one had heard the person even mention a boyfriend before. Later she was constantly having time off for miscarriages, 9 in total!!! Then when asked to bring her "husband" to outings, made excuse after excuse, then suddenly he gets killed in a car accident. Nothing in local papers or obituary, has the funeral in another Country??? And STILL management let this go without proof.sick in the head, or a pathological liar, you decide.
