Nineteen illegal workers were found in 11 businesses across Sussex, I wonder how many would be found if every restaurant/takeaway was visited.
UKBA officers raided businesses across the county in Eastbourne, Crawley, Horsham, Worthing, Hove, East Grinstead and Chichester, between Thursday 19th April and Saturday 21st April.
Across the 3 days, a total of 19 people were arrested from visits to 11 businesses, 18 of whom were found working illegally. The final arrest was of a 42-year-old Bangladeshi male found at an address in Teville Road, Worthing, but not working there.
Of the 11 businesses where arrests were made, 9 have been threatened with fines unless they can prove that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out.
Of the 19 arrests, 16 have been detained pending their unlikely removal from the UK. The remaining 3 were granted immigration bail to scarper to some other county.
Retire at 68, sack workers at 65 make your mind up!
It seems firms have the elderly worker by the short and curlies these days. If they want to they can make an employee work until they’re 68 or if they feel like it they can dump them at 65. Presumably the dumped 65 year old will have to sign on for Jobseekers Allowance.
After a court case companies have been told that they can still dismiss employees on the grounds of age as long as they conform to guidelines laid down by the court.
What annoys me is council bureaucrats can retire at 55 with great big fat pensions funded by the taxpayer.
