HR Strange But True!
December 02, 2010

While most people dread receiving a jury duty summons in the mail, one HR manager went out of her way to forge one.

An HR manager allegedly altered her father’s juror summons, presented it to her employer, and then said she was picked. She was out of work eight days for supposed jury duty. However, instead of sitting in a court room, the employee apparently took a mini-vacation to Baltimore.

How she got caught. The woman made several mistakes, according to the NY Post. The first was leaving evidence on her desk. Her boss allegedly found a document that shows she altered the date and name on a juror summons originally sent to her father.

Her second mistake was posting her activities to her Facebook page. While she was supposed to be listening to testimony on a vehicular-homicide case, she was posting messages like “Bmore bound!!!” and “Off to Fogo de Chao then going to see Kevin Hart perform.”

When she returned to work, her boss was the least of her worries. The HR manager was arrested for forgery, held on $25,000 bond, and could face up to 14 years in prison.
