Actually, he kept getting paychecks while working in the cubicle upstairs.
Only when they found out did they send him downstatirs to the basement.

        "exxxcuthe me, Mr. Lunburgh, I think I didn't get my paycheck"

The 'hero' in that film did merely nothing and just pretended to have been
kept busy in his cubicle. Something to do with the millennium bug if I
recall correctly. Great film, that one. Makes you think.

Best wishes,
