    Look out- Doughty’s about. He’s In House of Conmans library today, looking up the definition of a Limited company.

    It would be interesting to know their reasons if any.

    The Con-Ind controlled Vale of Glamorgan Council avoid being on the other name and shame ( non payment of living wage) list by utilising sub contract tendering for waste disposal and other services. The Vale refuse to disclose or vet sub- contract wage rates (see FOI’s passim 2013) GMB and Labour-Coop Party agreed Policy is for a Local Authority to have the enforcement powers not HMRC. The Vale obviously would wish to avoid this as they would not benefit from the cheap labour cost savings they achieve by the back door.
    The previous Labour administration was no better with some high profile resignations from their Trade Union just as soon as they got their feet under the Cabinet Table.

    If the total owed to 11 employees is only £1150, which incidentaly they obviously should have been paid of course, then it equates to around £100 each. It does not make clear in the report, over what period these underpayments were made, but if it was over just one year, it would only equate to £2 per week, 2 years would be £1 per week and so on. Hardly a massive fraud on the employers part and quite possibly some minor accounting error which has multiplied over an extended period of time.
    The employees involved here, should of course now be paid what they are due, but why the Government sees fit to name a successful company that has not underpaid (very probably accidentally), their employees to anywhere near the same level as say Argos have undoubtedly planned to rip off theirs, is totally unnecessary in my view.
