A4e, the workfare company, stands accused of being involved in a vast fraud scandal.
The allegations came a week after the Department for Work and Pensions cleared A4e of fraud in its current contracts. A4e denies any wrongdoing.
Eddie Hutchinson, the former head of audit at A4e said that the leaders of the company oversaw a “disgraceful misuse of government and taxpayer funding”. His claims include:
A4e is entirely funded by government work and makes about £215 million a year from 72 government contracts.
A4e founder Emma Harrison paid herself an £8.6 million dividend last year. Harrison still owns 87 percent of the company and has a net worth estimated at more than £70 million.
