MTA inspector general says saboteur cut time clock cord at Jamaica stationPosted: Updated:
MTA Inspector General Carolyn Pokorny says a cord to a time clock was deliberately cut at the Jamaica Long Island Rail Road station.
The clock is used by LIRR employees to check in and out of work.
"There will be zero tolerance for any sabotaging of the equipment that is vital for ensuring the integrity of the MTA's timekeeping system," Pokorny said.
The MTA recently began installing the new time clocks at all employee facilities as part of its effort to address alarmingly high overtime rates.
An April report by the nonprofit Empire Center for Public Policy found the MTA's top earner in 2018 made $344,147 in overtime alone.
