(Newser) – They've done all the bad things you can imagine on the clock, and maybe a few you can't—here are some of the worst employees of the year, according to CNN and careerbuilder.com:

  • A high ambulance driver who ran two red lights with a patient—and no siren.
  • A Baltimore elections warehouse employee who made and sold 415 counterfeit DVDs at work.
  • An INS worker who sold green cards for $8,000-$16,000 a pop.
  • A mail carrier who stole from letters from her route for a year.
  • A daycare worker who left a 14-month-old locked inside after the center closed.

  • A Chicago reporter seen cavorting in a bikini with a man whose wife had been missing for months.
  • An English pub employee who punched his manager and took from the register wages he claimed he was owed.
  • A Catholic priest in Colorado who went jogging fully naked.
  • A Canadian bakery employee who refused to stay home despite being sick with salmonella.
  • A public employee who didn't report a 5-year-old girl's report of being molested in foster care.
