An ongoing internal investigation has led to the dismissal of three more TTC employees.
After police laid charges last July against a health care store and service provider for it’s alleged involvement in a TTC employee benefits fraud case, transit officials have been interviewing employees who have been linked to filing benefit claims involving the health care store.
The investigation reports that several transit employees have been submitting receipts from the health care store where amounts have been inflated as well as claiming reimbursement when no product or services have been received.
Also, there have been further allegations stating that Healthy Fit and the person making the improper claim would then share the benefit money which is paid out by the TTC’s insurance provider, Manulife Financial.
Following the opening of the July investigation, the TTC said they anticipated more employee dismissals however no charges have been laid against any TTC employee at this time.
Transit officials also stated that to insure transparency and openness of this serious matter, they will continue to publicly state when further employee dismissals or other significant developments occur.
Since the investigation was launched by Toronto Police, there have been a total of eight transit staff dismissed for their involvement.
