GOVERNMENT CRACKS DOWN ON CORBY EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES

GOVERNMENT CRACKS DOWN ON CORBY EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES

Thirteen employment agencies in Corby have been issued with warnings for failing to comply with the law.

The warnings follow an investigation in Northamptonshire by the Governments Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate. Investigators found that 13 agencies in Corby were breaking employment regulations. The worst practices identified included:

workers not being paid for work they had done
employees being threatened with fines for absence
charging employees for services they hadnt received

Employment Minister Pat McFadden said:

The Government has doubled the number of Employment Agency Standards inspectors so that they can get out on the ground in places like Corby and ensure workers are not denied the decent rights that Parliament has legislated for.

Follow up investigations will take place in Corby to make sure that the agencies concerned have changed their ways. Agencies that continue to flout the law could be prosecuted, hit hard with fines or even banned from operating for up to 10 years.
