Ghost Worker Solicitors in Manchester and London
Ghost workers are employees who appears on a company’s payroll but do not actually work at the company.
These people may not even exist, but by being on the roll they are still paid. It can be easy for a large company to do, especially if they have sperate sites or are based in different countries. The result is that the person who has entered the details of the ghost worker will receive the wages paid to the worker.
