Kent Jobfair invites Argos, a Company fined by HMRC for underpaying staff

A Jobfair, sponsored by Jobcentre Plus, the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Sevenoaks District Council, to be held on 14 September at the Assembly Hall in Tunbridge Wells, has invited Argos to come along and speak to jobseekers about work there.

The Independent reported that Argos’ owner Sainsbury’s had been fined the vast sum of £1.5m by the HM Revenue & Customers for paying their hardworking staff less than the minimum wage.

Around 37,000 current and former Argos workers suffered from loss of earnings.
