Last year we needed a little help doing donkey work on a site: just cleaning it up and loading skips. 4 site labourers were requested from a recruitment company for a few days work.

Today I was called down the office and ask if we had paid them. I thought it was the employment agency we used at the time...... they couldn't read my wonderful handwriting again :blush:

Turns out it was one of the labours we employed last year. He'd still not been paid and asked if we had paid the employment agency [confused1.gif]

After talking to the employment agency it turns out he was telling the truth, none of the site labourers got paid and they just sat on there wages for the last 6 months. They told me down the phone this was a computer problem. [rofl02.gif]

When I asked the simple question: when will you be paying them? They had no idea [9n5.gif]

The lads worked hard and I'm arranging to pay them what they're owed next week. It's less than two grand in total.

The employment agency will face my legal team who will recover the full amount they invoice for.

It's the second time in 12 months I've came across an employment agency not paying their staff. And its starting to really fcuk me off [1744330pz84739fis.gif]

Labour providers are popping up, pretty much overnight... and disappearing just as quick, with a bundle of cash.. perhaps you’ll have a closer look at who you use, next time..

The problem with employment agencies is offend there a franchise and part of a national chain. Its normal to use the local branch if we're over 90 min's driving time.

The issue is anyone can buy a franchise and trusted on the brand name alone.

The outcome from this case is we won't use company again and reclaim all payments made to them in this matter. Notification will be sent to subcontractors and partners companies of our actions.
