14 Verizon managers fired for falsifying work reports
Verizon Communications Inc., the region's largest telephone company, said it fired 14 managers in the Boston area about two weeks ago for "falsifying company reports" that track the hours employees work.
Verizon spokesman Phil Santoro said the misconduct did not affect customers, but violated the company's code of conduct.
Separately, Verizon recently said it was cutting 2,700 management-level jobs nationwide, about 1 percent of its total workforce, including an unspecified number in Massachusetts, where it has about 13,000 employees.
