A Question of Security - Don't Employ Illegals
Security is an important issue for HMRC, given the fact that HMRC holds personal data on every tax payer in Britain it is vital that the data is held securely.
Therefore it is disappointing to learn that seven immigrants lied their way into security jobs at HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) with forged documents last year.
They worked for a contractor that guarded customs buildings before they were identified in December.
Since then one of the workers has been arrested, five have resigned and the other is on maternity leave while her immigration status is investigated.
This information belatedly came to light after a Freedom of Information request.
HMRC said the latest revelations had been exposed after a routine check on paperwork found "irregularities".
Shouldn't the paperwork be checked before employing people?
Tax does have to be taxing.
