Could you please explain the situation a little more?
the council issues the taxis with contracts as contractor, the company i worked
the council issues taxis with contracts as a contractor
the council issues taxis with contracts, the company was employing staff illegally i reported it to the council who says it is not their remit what about audit.
And you want to know whether it should be the Council investigating whether staff are employed illegally?
yes as the staff are transporting the councils passengers
do you need more information before i leave
No, I will respond shortly.
have you an answer for me
Its bad news I am afraid. The Council do not have an obligation to investigate, this is not a matter for them.
It is for HMRC and UKBA (If illegal immigrants) are being used to work there
Enforcing rules to do with proper workers is sadly not what the tender process is for.
That is a matter of enforcement with HMRC and the UKBA if necessary
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
even if the council is also the licensing body
