Estate of former administrator ordered to pay UBC $650K for wage fraud, theft

British Columbia’s Supreme Court has ordered the estate of a former University of British Columbia and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority administrator to repay over $650K to UBC for wage fraud and theft. The court record states that an audit conducted by UBC found that the late Wanda Moscipan engaged in various fraudulent actions between 1997 and 2011, including stealing money from a dormant staff fund, receiving 180% of a FTE salary from UBC and VCHA without authorization, and forging signatures to give herself pay raises. Justice Matthew Taylor stated that Moscipan and her estate were “unjustly enriched” while UBC “suffered a corresponding deprivation”; Taylor subsequently ordered the estate to repay the university.
