A new report shows at least 21 of the Hamilton Public Works employees under investigation are about to lose their jobs.
The Hamilton Spectator is reporting that it's also possible all 32 employees could be fired.
The word comes as the city is conducting a review of allegations that time sheets were altered, city vehicles being taken for personal use and asphalt sold off the back of city trucks.
According to Spectator sources, one of the most egregious abuses of time was an employee who worked only 16 minutes and received pay for the entire day.
A report on the probe is due on Monday.
There is also a separate police investigation underway.
The workers have been on paid leave since January 15th pending the outcome of the report.
