Time theft is unsanctioned use of time while on the job. More specifically, it’s time for which employees get paid that was not spent in pursuit of one’s assigned tasks. And it can take various forms: daydreaming, cyberloafing, and socializing or doing personal tasks during work hours. Moreover, it can occur while at a workplace, as well as while working from home. And while it is sometimes done intentionally, often it is not.
