A man in Atlanta is facing charges he lied to his employer about testing positive for the Coronavirus.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta says, Santwon Antonio Davis, 34, was charged with defrauding his employer.
Davis told his employer that he tested positive causing the company to shut down its plant for sanitizing and putting some employees on paid leave while they quarantined. Prosecutors said the company more than $100,000.
The company’s human resources manager reviewed the medical excuse letter and saw some indications of fraud, like that he was discharged in November 2019, was unsigned and didn’t appear to be on formal letterhead. The company also called the hospital where Davis said he’d been tested and found out that it wasn’t doing COVID-19 tests.
He appeared in court Thursday and was granted bond, according TMZ.
