A4E: We need a Public Investigation Now.

with 36 comments

This fortnight has been a rollercoaster.

From being almost completely ignored Workfare has become a major issue.

The ‘Welfare-to-Work’ industry is now under public scrutiny.

Internal Government investigations are not enough.

The attempt to pooh-pooh critics as ‘Trotksyists’ and ‘Anarchists’ shows how desperate the Cabinet is.

No amount of shilly-shallying by David Cameron will suffice.

That is why Ipswich Unemployed Action demands a major public inquiry into the whole sordid affair.

On the model of the Leveson inquiry it should investigate allegations, revealed by our top-researcher, Work Programme, and other sites, of the large-scale abuse of public funds by the company still (as Private Eye points out today) owned by Emma Harrison.

In these conditions, this is the least that we can expect.

  1. The research you and WorkProgramme are doing is amazing – thank you so much. Are you in touch with Channel 4 news, Cathy Newman was very good at trying to grill/roast Chris Grayling recently. Sorry if this is obvious, you’ve probably done this already.

  2. As a hard-working taxpayer who commutes 100 miles into and out of London everyday on the dirty, overcrowded, expensive trains that form the crumbling infrastructure know laughingly as the rail network, I must say I am outraged at the obscene sums of public money that are being transferred into private hands. Very soon this country will be bled dry, there will be nothing left and the rich will have deserted this barren wasteland to pastures anew.

    What does it take to suspend these contracts?

    Tale after tale, abuse after abuse, all piling up, and the government seemingly ignoring them.

    It’s a horrendous state of affairs.

  6. Ooh yes, a proper investigation. The scam has gone on long enough.

    It warrants such, but i don’t believe we’re quite there yet. They’ll probably push ahead, tweak a few things.
    If the possibility of a thorough investigation should ever loom large they may throw us a sausage to try and appease, like cutting a provider out the loop. Or something? Woof!

    They’ll hope any serious opposition wanes before the years out, business will continue as usual. As will resistance from the more informed unemployed.
    With each passing week more people are exposed to this scam.
    And the ones who, until they lost their jobs, thought this stuff was all exaggerated bullshit. They’re going to find out first hand what a completely useless scam it actually is.

    And the less well financially endowed recent graduates who after feeling that the dole was beneath them, the student loan long gone. They want a job. The parents who helped put them through university, but cannot keep bailing them out, they want them in a job.
    But they aren’t that plentiful and now the average graduate is one of the 10 or 20 or 40 or so applicants for the job they might like to get. Even the jobs they might not like to get! So the dole beckons, for some of them. The WP eventually! Above average graduate? You should be fine.

    I think at this stage the best we ‘may’ get is A4e investigated, possibly cut loose from government contracts? At least the ones with regard to the administering of bullying and intimidation to the unemployed. They all exploit!
    Eight out of ten claimants said their adviser hates them! I made that bit up, though probably closer to fact than anything that comes out of most politicians mouths.

    I think they should just (just!) make the WP voluntary. Without the punitive measures. The same with most other such programmes too.
    Stop the free labour masquerading as work experience. Make it all voluntary. Offer something worth volunteering for. .

    Nice idea. But where’s the profit in that?

    • Yes exactly, the main problem I am aware of is, although they still occur today, much of this is from back in 2010 (you know, no a4e employee is going to incriminate themselves – only ones who will speak are those who have moved on)… this means pretty much all the evidence for a successful prosecution has been destroyed.

      Providers are expected to retain financial details of past contracts (not sure whether DWP has the sense to keep a record of their own) but you know, its easy to lose thousands of them, you know the illegal ones…

      The problem is, I doubt DWP keeps the EVT evidence and A4e is unlikely to be enthusiastic to show them a copy. It then makes it close to impossible to investigate, as I assume they wouldn’t have information of who has gone into work – only consolidated figures.

      If employer names are obtained (if a record kept) a tally can be drawn up with the employer asked questions on their HR records. It will hit those businesses hard though – could be a big expense.

      I doubt they have the receipts for the DIY stamp kits and have probably got rid of those.

      The problem is corruption on the inside. Politicians etc. have turned a blind eye because everyone on these schemes are treated as employed – its good for the figures!!

      So politicians don’t care if A4e has stole money from the taxpayer… after all its what welfare-to-work is all about… paying billions of pounds to try to solve a problem – that problem is NOT unemployment but simply unemployment figures.

      I would rather a Government that fixes the figures at no cost: same result – mega money saving!!!

      Now the Government is simply buying time – loads of time – enough for A4e to get out of this one. The sad thing is, corruption aside, why don’t they just replace A4e with one of the other large w2w providers? At first I thought it was about propping up these poor performing schemes (if one of the major providers pull out = its a disaster, collapse)… indeed that could be true but there is more to it.

      A4e Emma Harrison CBE has too many friends and contacts in high places, and for those she hasn’t, she knows someone who does.

    Having worked in this sector for many, many years I am not surprised at the allegations. by the way A4E is not the only private sector company in this industry so we can, sadly, expect other suppliers of these services to be outed for similar practices. But DM A4E started as Action4Employment in 1991 and got its first contracts under John Major’s Conservative government; I worked for the Employment Service/DWP then. Shall we just say that I strongly doubt based on my experiences that this company only started these institutionalised malpractices when New labour came into power. You are possibly looking at 20 years of malpractice. The issue is that governments, especially Conservative ones thought that it was easy to get the long term jobless into work and the failure was down to useless civil servants in Jobcentres. The private sector believed this and jumped into the contracts with relish only to find how hard it was and faced with zero returns fiddled the results..

    – Freewheelin, Sheffield, 8/3/2012 11:10

    Another example if one was needed of how the government just give taxpayers money to anyone who asks for it and without any checks done by the bloated civil service who also get paid just for turning up.

    There have been a host of complaints going back years made by the unemployed about this Company, but nobody wanted to listen to the unemployed.

    – jIM wOODSj, Peterborough, 8/3/2012 10:48

    Any investigation should dig deeper. There would be very large queues from former employees that would be able to shed more on the practices this company forced upon the unfortunate people that worked for A4e. Complaints went in when I worked there and on one occasion the manager wrote what I said, word for word, thinking this would intimidate me into retracting my accusations. It was rotten to the core and many at the coalface did try to imporve things for the clients. Some even reported directly to the Jobcentre about their misgivings who then reported the whistleblower to the company. I would say that A4e is not alone though in this and another one such company was fined (in Wales) for falsifying ‘back to work’ results. But then, it’s more taxpayers money to throw away so nothing will be done. And… I expect Harrison to get away scot free will her millions intact.

    – Tony, Brecon, 8/3/2012 10:31

    I remember seeing people sent out for days out, when inspectors were coming to visit a4e, People who weren’t the right look. Newspapers being weeks out of date, Phone books 4 or 5 years out of date. computers that you couldnt use because it would take ages to open one page. Three times i have been sent to a4e, three times they promised placement, or a job three times they did nothing. Three times i asked about training, i want to teach computers, three times they said yes.. then at the 12th or 13th week sorry we dont do that.. even now, in a4e they dont do walk in sessions, they just do what it says in the contract.. and NOTHING more.. over 1000 people are there, and 20 computers, so you have to be booked into using them, they send you on cv writing courses, letter writing courses, exactly the same as they did the three times before. A4e is not fit for purpose. And the people who really suffer are the unemployed. They feel worthless and are treated like it by them.

  16. Some good advice (comment from Watching A4e)

    Anonymous Mar 7, 2012 04:41 PM

    I have fallen victim to the lies of A4e after making a number of complaints. For example, after being offered a “course” on Microsoft Office only to find it was the most basic of point and click introductory exercises, I pointed out that it fell well short of being considered “training”. The response was “there is nothing in your work history or education showing experience of computers” – Yet on the DWP purchase order, it quite clearly stated ‘Software Developer’ as a previous occupation. Perhaps they also missed the fact that I would bring my one laptop in when they wanted to see my CV and covering letters for various job applications…

    If you’re going to lie in writing, make sure there is no documentary evidence to the contrary. Better yet, don’t send copies to the DWP or my MP as the A4e shmuck did.

  17. Tories order police to halt workfare demos as MP makes formal protest to BBC over bias in favour of hard-Left militants

    A police crackdown on anti-capitalist extremists who invade shops to sabotage the Government’s work experience programme has been ordered by Ministers.

    Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith has asked the police to act amid growing fears in Whitehall that the protesters’ wrecking tactics are succeeding.

    Burger King yesterday became the latest major company to withdraw from the Welfare-to-work scheme after claims that it amounts to ‘slave labour’.

    Last week, a Tesco store in Westminster was forced to close after it was targeted by Left-wing activists bearing placards accusing the firm of ‘exploitation’.

    Mr Duncan Smith believes retailers are not getting enough protection and, after raising the matter with Home Secretary Theresa May, asked the police to get tough.

    He said: ‘We have asked the police to be more pro-active. If they receive intelligence that a shop is to be invaded they should stop it happening. And if a shop has been invaded, retailers need to know that they can call on the police to eject them. It is illegal to prevent people going about their normal business.’

    The aim of the scheme is to place young people on Jobseeker’s Allowance in work experience for up to eight weeks to help make them more ‘marketable’ to employers.

    It is voluntary and those taking part have a week to pull out of a placement if they feel it is not right for them. However, if they withdraw without good reason after that stage, benefits can be withdrawn.

    So far, more than 34,000 jobseekers have volunteered for work experience stints of up to two months, and about half have stopped claiming benefits as a result.

    The decision to send in the police came as Tory MP Priti Patel made a formal protest to the BBC, accusing it of being biased in favour of the protest led by the Left-wing Right To Work organisation.

    She claimed BBC 2 Newsnight had ‘spent all week putting solitary Government Ministers up against panels made up of the hard Left’.

    And fellow Conservative Philip Davies said: ‘Burger King are spineless. They have caved into pressure from a small band of hard-Left militants.’

    Critics claim many of the job placements are for ‘worthless’ shelf-stacking roles – but Ministers point out that Burger King was offering youngsters white-collar work experience at its office HQ.

    The Right To Work group has close links with the Socialist Workers’ Party and Ministers say it is using ‘sinister’ methods.

    They claim agitators were responsible for flooding the website Mumsnet with abusive messages attacking firms involved in the scheme, such as Tesco.

    Employment Minister Chris Grayling, who devised the scheme, says he has fresh evidence to back up his claim that ‘fake activity’ by a ‘small number’ of Socialist-linked activists is driving the campaign.

    He says that hours after he repeated the claim on the BBC last week, he was bombarded with dozens of emails, using almost identical wording, from campaigners. They all ‘protested in the strongest possible terms’ against his claim that the Right to Work campaign was a front for the Socialist Workers’ Party.

    The emails all say: ‘I am not, and never have been, associated in any way with the Socialist Workers’ Party – or indeed any other Left-wing political group.’

    Sources say David Cameron is ‘determined’ to rescue the scheme and is ‘livid’ at the BBC’s role. On Tuesday’s Newsnight, Tory MP Harriett Baldwin was put up against three critics who had experience of workfare schemes.

    Jeremy Paxman asked Baldwin four times: ‘Do you understand why people find the schemes offensive?’

    And on Thursday, presenter Kirsty Wark said: ‘It’s just essentially cheap labour.’

    On Friday morning’s Today programme, Evan Davis said: ‘The amount you are going to learn stacking shelves is not going to be very great – it’s been over-sold. What do you learn when you go and do work experience in supermarkets?’

    Then Friday evening’s Newsnight – following a filmed report which poured scorn on the Government’s claims that the protest campaign was being pushed by social media manipulation – put a Tory MP up against another panel of three critics.

    And Paul Callanan, representing Youth Fight for Jobs and Education, was asked whether the campaigners were a front for socialism.

    He said: ‘I am a member of the Socialist Party’, adding: ‘The reason socialists are taking up this issue is because it’s a symptom of a capitalist system that is utterly corrupt, rotten to the core.’

    The Tories have also questioned the role played by the Left-wing Guardian newspaper.

    It has offered blanket, supportive coverage of the Right to Work’s campaigns, with many pieces written by Left-wing activist Shiv Malik.

    Mr Malik, 30, has been a controversial figure for more than a decade. Just six days after the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers in 2001, he wrote: ‘The world has gone crazy, 5,000 businessmen and military personnel die and suddenly we are at war. With whom? More people die each day from starvation or bad water as a result of IMF loans.’

    In 2008, police raided Mr Malik’s North London home to search for interviews he carried out with Hassan Butt, a former Muslim extremist arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences. Butt was later released without charge.

    Mr Malik, who was writing a biography of Butt, won a High Court battle to keep the material confidential. In 2010, Mr Malik was caught up in violent student protests against tuition fees, and described being struck on the head by a police baton. He wrote: ‘I felt a big whacking thud and I heard it reverberating inside my head. There was blood everywhere.’

    Mr Malik has posted dozens of messages on Twitter over the past week attacking Welfare-to-work.

    Ironically, the Guardian has itself been accused of ‘exploiting’ unpaid work experience students.

    The newspaper is currently advertising on its website: ‘A limited number of short work experience opportunities throughout the year to those dedicated to a career in journalism. Placements are unpaid and range in duration from a few days to a maximum of two weeks.’

    Mumsnet appears to have been one of the main targets of the campaigners. Its mothers’ internet forum has been bombarded with postings critical of Tesco and the work experience, many aggressively militant in tone and language.

    One ‘strand’, which was started on February 16 and now has more than 1,000 posts, is headlined: ‘Tesco should f***ing well PAY THEIR STAFF’ and includes lines such as ‘why the f***ing f*** should Tesco get their staff for free? Why?’ Another, left by someone calling themselves ‘Norman Tebbit’, reads: ‘Tesco are absolute f***ers.’ Mumsnet is run by Justine Roberts – the wife of Ian Katz, the Guardian’s deputy editor. Ms Roberts did not respond to calls. Right to Work started in 2009 as a campaign against public service cuts, with the Socialist Workers’ Party boasting that it had ‘initiated the campaign’.

    An early rally in May 2010 was dominated by SWP members. Right to Work is currently led by bus driver Paul Brandon, a representative for the Left-wing Unite union, and its registered address is the home of SWP boss Charlie Kimber.

    Right to Work’s spokesman, Mark Dunk, is an unemployed activist whose Facebook page has as its profile picture the slogan: ‘All out! Stay out!’

    The BBC said: ‘It is impossible to respond to a complaint before it has been received, however we are comfortable that our coverage of this issue has been fair and impartial.’

    Mumsnet co-founder Justine Roberts said: ‘Mumsnet is a place where you often get strong debate and differing views.

    ‘To suggest Mumsnet users are anyone’s stooge is just nonsense and to suggest that I am merely a mouthpice for my husband is just sexist Many Mumsnet users expressed views against the Workfare scheme but not all.

    ‘Some wanted Mumsnet to withdraw adverts from workfare participants which we have not done as we know the arguments are finely balanced.’

  19. The Government has launched an investigation into an allegation of attempted fraud against welfare to work company A4e, it has been announced.
    The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) said it had been made aware of an allegation of attempted fraud in relation to a Mandatory Work Activity contract with the firm, which is already facing a police investigation in relation to previous allegations.

    A statement said: “As a result of this new allegation, DWP has immediately commenced its own independent audit of all our commercial relationships with A4e.

    “We have required A4e to make available all documentation which our auditors may require and provide full access to interview any A4e employees. This is separate from the independent review of internal controls which A4e has previously announced.

    “We have made it absolutely clear to A4e that we take this matter very seriously, and that if, at any point during the audit or thereafter, we find evidence of systemic fraud in DWP’s contracts with A4e, we will not hesitate to immediately terminate our commercial relationship.”

    A4e said: “The board has made consistently clear in all previous statements that we take any allegations of fraudulent or otherwise illegal activity extremely seriously. There is absolutely no place for this type of misconduct at A4e.

    “We obviously acknowledge the concerns raised by DWP, and we welcome and will co-operate fully with their planned investigations.

    “A4e has more than 3,500 staff and operates out of 200 offices in the UK. From December 2005 to date, nine cases relating to A4e have been referred to the Department of Work and Pensions to review claims submissions.

    “Of these nine referrals, one, dating back to May 2008, resulted in the prosecution of an individual member of A4e staff, which was widely reported at the time. Another is the case now being handled by Thames Valley Police. In each of the remaining, closed cases, the DWP’s view was that these were not incidences of malpractice.

    “The board has asked White & Case LLP to lead an independent and thorough review of A4e’s controls and procedures. That process will be carried out concurrently, and all findings will be provided to DWP.

  20. There is an interesting statement, intended I believe to put pressure upon the various organisations taking advantage of the work experience schemes, being sent to the local managers, the CEO and other board members of those organisations involved, by those unwillingly forced to work for them:

    “I participate in this work ‘experience’ forced labour scheme only under duress, due to the threat of sanction and being reduced to a state of absolute poverty if I do not. I am not a volunteer. I am a conscript.

    I have no loyalty to, or respect for, any organisation which does not believe that my labour is worth the bare minimum hourly rate, the National Minimum Wage, and thus takes advantage of my economic weakness. I will participate, but under protest.”

  22. A4e: Department for Work and Pensions probes fraud claims

    An investigation into an allegation of attempted fraud against welfare to work company A4e has been launched by the Department for Work and Pensions.

    t said it had been made aware of an allegation of attempted fraud in relation to a contract with the firm.

    Police are already investigating claims of irregularities at the company.

    The company, which had launched an internal audit, said it took any allegations of fraudulent or illegal activity extremely seriously.

    As part of its work, the Slough-based company handles millions of pounds worth of government contracts for welfare-to-work schemes.

    The new allegation is in relation to a work experience scheme called Mandatory Work Activity, launched by the current government in May 2010.

    ‘Co-operate fully’

    The DWP said it had “immediately commenced” an independent audit of its commercial relationships with A4e following the allegation.

    “We have required A4e to make available all documentation which our auditors may require and provide full access to interview any A4e employees. This is separate from the independent review of internal controls which A4e has previously announced,” a statement said.

    “We have made it absolutely clear to A4e that we take this matter very seriously, and that if, at any point during the audit or thereafter, we find evidence of systemic fraud in DWP’s contracts with A4e, we will not hesitate to immediately terminate our commercial relationship.”

    In a statement, A4e said: “We obviously acknowledge the concerns raised by DWP, and we welcome and will co-operate fully with their planned investigations.

    “A4e has more than 3,500 staff and operates out of 200 offices in the UK. From December 2005 to date, nine cases relating to A4e have been referred to the Department of Work and Pensions to review claims submissions.

    “Of these nine referrals, one, dating back to May 2008, resulted in the prosecution of an individual member of A4e staff, which was widely reported at the time.

    “Another is the case now being handled by Thames Valley Police. In each of the remaining, closed cases, the DWP’s view was that these were not incidences of malpractice.”
    Independent audit

    A4e added that the firm’s board had legal firm White & Case to lead a review of its controls and procedures.

    Last month four ex-members of staff of A4e were arrested on suspicion of fraud at the company dating back to 2010.

    As part of its work, A4e handles millions of pounds worth of government contracts for welfare-to-work schemes.

    More than 24,000 people have been through the Mandatory Work Activity programme, which involves a four-week placement including maintenance work on houses, renovating furniture or supporting charities, since its launch.

    The scheme is aimed at getting people into a working routine if they needed an additional “push” to find a job.

    A4e started in South Yorkshire more than 20 years ago to provide retraining to large numbers of Sheffield steelworkers who became redundant when the industry started to decline.

  23. “some of us have mortgages and family do u have a conscience?”

    Did you and your colleagues have a conscience when you sanctioned clients, knowing full well the implications?

    The government have raised a sanction doubt regarding A4e’s non-compliance. They won’t care that you have to keep a roof over your head, pay essential bills, feed your family etc. You should have followed all the mandated instructions when the contracts were signed, but chose not to comply.
