A4e workfare slave exposes expenses fraud

with 2 comments

Karma is a bitch, right Emma Harrison CBE? An unemployed A4e client was given a 4 week work placement in A4e’s Finance Department (you can see where this is going, right?) and has exposed countless irregularities in regards to expenses.

Russell Kynoch noted missing receipts for travel and parking, wrong calculations, and expenses against company rules.

Out of a bundle of 20 receipts, he was advised only to pick 2 or 3 out to check. Much of the expenses from London were “wine and dine” bills. Concerns were also raised with the CEO Andrew Dutton.

Emma Harrison has refused to respond to an email listing the alleged claims at this time.

Ipswich Unemployed Action had previously raised concerns of the low tax bill and noted that we wouldn’t be surprised if it involved company expenses, however, we feel its highly unlikely that such irregular company expenses would make it past an audit. If we are wrong, HMRC will be joining in the investigations.

  1. The entire edifice of what is A4e is collapsing around us.

    The pretence has been stripped and they are still in operation?

    Lets hope the Government cuts them loose soon, they might well have to, to save their own skins – a naturally reflex especially in politics.
