Palermo, July 31 - Finance police in the Sicilian
city of Palermo uncovered a call-centre that paid its 37 workers
two to three euros per hour under-the-table, police said on
Wednesday.
The employees, aged 19 to 50, pitched water-filters under
fictitious contracts based on minimum sales quotas, but in truth
were paid a miserly hourly wage in funds loaded onto prepaid
cash cards.
There were 22 workers at the time of the bust, but police
tracked down another 15 workers who had worked for the company
since it opened in May 2012.
Finance police found that the company owner had paid more
than 80,000 euros in wages over six months without making tax or
pension contributions of any sort.
In addition, workers did not receive a letter of
employment, nor a formal contract nor did they sign payment
receipts.
By dodging a national, collective contract covering the
sector, the business owner saved more than 40,000 euros in
social security benefits that should have been paid on behalf of
the workers.
The owner faces administrative fines between 72,725 and
644,330 euros.
