A Queens man will face a judge Friday after being arrested for allegedly scamming his employer out of $80,000 by filing false time sheets for his girlfriend for more than six months, Nassau County police said.

Jeff Jeannot, 27, of St. Albans, surrendered to detectives Thursday and is now faces charges of second-degree grand larceny and falsifying business records. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said Jeannot worked as a branch manager of Labor Ready – a company that provides temporary day laborers to a variety of industries – at their location on Main Street in Hempstead between February 2013 and September 2013.

Investigators allege that during that time, he “fraudulently entered work hours into the company’s intranet site in the name of his girlfriend for hours which were not worked.” Police did not identify the woman. They estimated the company suffered a loss of $80,000.

Jeannot surrendered himself to police Thursday afternoon and was arrested without incident. He was being held in police custody and could not be reached for comment.
