The Fort Worth postmaster is on paid administrative leave while the watchdog arm of the U.S. Postal Service investigates the office, several sources said. The inspector general is investigating possible problems with the recording of mail volume, which can be a key driver of budgeting and efficiency measures, officials said. The Postmaster said he continues to work on post office projects while on leave and hopes to have the matter cleared up as soon as he meets with the district manager.
PostalReporter note: If a Postal Worker is placed on Administrative Leave pending an investigation he or she must call the Post Office every day–but he or she must stay away from the facility. So it appears different rules are applied when management employees are placed on administrative (paid) leave.
