Leaked Tory Memo Tells MPs to Dodge Minimum Wage Laws
MPs Told “Don’t Mention Work” in Adverts to Bend Rules

Click to enlarge.

A leaked internal Tory memo advises MPs on how to get away with exploiting their unpaid interns without breaking the very same minimum wage laws those MPs insist other employers adhere to. Unpaid intern campaign website Graduate Fog has got hold of the memo which urges MPs to seek out loopholes in their own legislation:

Swap the phrase “You will be expected to…” for “The kind of activities it would be great to get some help with include…”

- Don’t mention ”work”, “worker”, “tasks” or “hours” – but instead ask applicants to offer their “help” with “campaigning administration”

- Instead, use the words “volunteer” and “volunteering”

- Take care only to reimburse expenses for actual bought items, as opposed to a flat rate per week. This is because “regular payments of expenses are likely to give the volunteer the right to the minimum wage” and create a “risk” that they will be “classed as a worker” and therefore must be paid.

So the Tories tell employers that they must pay employees doing work the minimum wage, yet advise their own MPs on how to dodge the rules. Which has to win the hypocrisy of the day award…

    I bet the bastards that wrote this are not on the minimum wage or less, in fact I bet they’re on really big money. It’s this type of thing that adds up to the hatred felt by so many in our ‘classless’ society. Bob Crow is often vilified but after reading this garbage I support all he’s done for his work force. Fucking Tories are the worse bastards on earth for hypocrisy.

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    No, slavery isn’t.

    Bonded labor is perhaps within their realm of interest.

    Other than the obvious ethical problem with such advice as exhibited above, there is a very fundamental issue for democracy here.

    The avoidance of paying interns money – or those who are interested in starting a political career on this route, is closed to those who do not have the means of servicing the debt incurred whilst studying, and ‘working’ for free.

    Employers who wish to follow suit have no reason not to now.

    If they wish to seek volunteers, that is one thing, but a volunteer role is very different to an internship.

    Surely Cameron should sack someone for this. Will he himself resign? Vermin the lot of them.

  25. 25
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    They are trying to avoid everything.

    The IR35 would apply to the intern if they became self employed for the purpose of filling a contract role which should be a regular staffed position.

    IR35 cannot apply in this case as there appears to be no employment contract involved.

  86. 86
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    So with a jury of 8 women and 4 men, and 14 counts of various sex offences, the CPS could not secure a single conviction.

    Then they have the brass neck to ask for a further 7 days to decide if they wish to go for a retrial on the remaining two charges of which the jury ould not decide – even with the Judges direction for a reduced majority of 10.

    The reduced majority incidentally being the minimum possible for this type of offence, and in itself an affront to justice given the nature of the offence.

    Something is very wrong with the CPS.

  87. 87

    Since Tony Blair (always unhealthily attracted by celebrities) was responsible for the appointment of people such as Baroness Scotland, Kier Starmer, who was appointed to the CPS by her, is yet another product of Blair’s inversion of the pyramid as regards the workings of UK legal jurisprudence and practice.

    It’s a bit like the old articled clerks for chartered accountants and solicitors, you had to have served your articles before before you became aa acccountant or solicitor, even thouh you took the same exams, non articled clerks became certified accountants and non articled solicitors became legal executives , they could practice on their own but were restricted as what they could do. If someones very rich mummy and daddy could afford to sent their kids to Eton or one of the others, they could easily sponsor said kids through uni. and Tory internship, got to have the right types you know.

  90. 90

    It is all posturing due to the fact that Savile got away with what he did.

    CPS guilty as charged says:

    I agree with you.

    If you think their recent performance has been poor, remember, these have been high profile cases where they knew the public would be watching and they have presumably been trying their best.

    Just think about how dire they can be when they are prosecuting in magistrates courts well out of the press’s gaze.

    What would happen if they were to have an accident at work through no fault of their own, that could be a little tricky to explain if legal action ensues.

    S, there is such a thing as an implied contract to work.

  94. 94
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    But the articled clerks etc. did not public guidelines among themselves on how to avoid specific parts of employment legislation.

    That is one difference.

    The other is that the articled positions generally did lead to actual position and they were paid.

    The discriminatory nature based on socioeconomic lines which is suggested is also somewhat dodgy turf these days.

  95. 95

    Now you are being silly now, Dave resign. Maybe if UKIP trounce the Cons in the EU’s, definity if Liebore get in the back door with the help of UKIP.

  96. 96
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    I agree that the CPS and many other parts of the state machinery are still dealing (unsuccessfully) with fallout from Savile.

    On a broader note – and to your Blair remark above, one can detect also the further degrading of the UK criminal justice system in order to harmonize it with the lesser systems which are found in Continental Europe.

    The failure to find the M’cCann girl, which is still ongoing, is one good case in point there.

  97. 97
    C.O.Jones says:

    Not the wishing to be pedantic here but it was Labour who introduced Student Tuition Fees, as with all revenue generating tools that any govt introduces they will only ever go UP.

    The student grant (maintenance grant for full time students from a poor background) is less now than it was in 1978 (£3,500) and now 2014 (£3,387).

    There is more money available to students from poorer backgrounds but these come in the form of Maintenance Loans which must be paid back.

  98. 98
    Jeremiah says:

    They didn’t get where they are today without being thick (a bit harsh) more like a lack of common sense. HMRC are the ones who (from memory) determine who is employed and who is not CCHQ

  99. 99
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    The press attention would not have affected the CPS case.

    If it has then there is a further problem with CPS.

    I do not believe the CPS have been trying their best to uphold justice and bring strong prosecution cases to that end.

    The CPS most certainly are showing the signs of being a rogue and somewhat politicized operation. This is a fundamental problem for a free and open society, not helped when the likes of Ken Clarke are still running around making the case for all courts to be in camera.

    More faux outrage from Guido. I sometimes have to get involved in HR matters; the law is complex and an utter nightmare, and the penalties for getting it wrong can be severe. This memo isn’t encouraging anyone to “bend” rules. No doubt in the run up to the election MPs of all parties will be looking for help to campaign, and will want to take on volunteers to do so. I doubt that many constituency offices have on-tap employment advice so trying to pre-empt MPs/candidates putting out ill thought out adverts that could lead to trouble later on is no bad thing. Having bothered to read the memo, as far as I can tell it says if you want to employ someone, pay them (at least) the NMW but if you want a volunteer, here’s how to do it properly.

    Sorry non story. A very useful guide to the law for associations – who will incidentally be run by volunteers. I have been an intern/volunteer for the Conservative party for 36 years. Delivering, canvassing, writing leaflets, maintaining websites, running social events, being an unpaid election agent etc. That is how all political parties operate not just now but for 100+ years. Same situation for other volunteers – Scout leaders, Sunday School teachers, mentors for troubled teenagers, people who take elderly people out on trips etc. Often volunteers, political or otherwise, will take on demanding unpaid roles. I am currently putting in 40 hours a week unpaid for the party – but am looking for some volunteers to help me with the website and social media (out of my technical comfort zone). We live in litigious times and I don’t want to be sued as an unpaid volunteer by a volunteer who decides they should have been paid because I worded an e-mail incorrectly giving the impression I was advertising a paid job. The information in this guide is very useful and I shall bare it in mind when I send an e-mail round this weekend asking for someone to help me with social media. And for all the UKIP fans out there – as a small emerging party they will be even MORE dependent on unpaid volunteers that the mainstream parties. I doubt UKIP have any paid staff other than in their head office. Guido – how about praising those unpaid political activists – all parties – who go out in rain and shine, sacrifice their careers, spend their own money but ensure democracy continues (albeit imperfectly) in this country.

    If such people existed, that would be great. I have not seen a tory activist (other than a candidate for parliament at a hustings) in my area for the last decade.

    Blatant disregard for the law.

    The Labour Party candidate should be banned from being on the ballot.

    That would teach them.

    I always knew you were innocent! That’s what they used to tell me back in Chile……that they were innocent – but we’ve heard it all before I used to tell them, before attaching the electrodes!

    Viva UKIP

    Vote Labour or we will kill you just as we killed the Czar and Czarina and the 120 million Chinese and 3 Million Cambodians and 80 Million White Russians and as many Christians as we can – God DAMN communists socialists and their ilk for they live on the blood of the innocent.

    Volunteer yourself – any party – Conservative, Labour, LD, UKIP then you will see how tough it is and how much work there is to do. I am FED UP with these armchair generals who do bugger all, but then complain they have not seen a party canvasser. Some areas have many, some areas have few. I lived in a safe Labour seat some years ago – there were 5 Conservative activists (unpaid, working in our spare time) to cover 45,000 houses and 70,000 voters. We did our best, but sorry if we did not get round to your house. So if you are a Conservative and feel there are not enough Conservatives canvassers in your area, then do your bit and canvass rather than criticise.

    I was at Hove Town Hall when our Glorious leader, Nigel Farage, was heckled & abused by the same Labour voting, benefit scrounging, unwashed scum that are trying to intimidate UKIP activists in Wythenshaw & Sale. So they all revert to type…….just like Shaun of the Dead!

    This isn’t really advice about how to get around the law, it’s advice about how not to break the law in the first place.

    Why are so many Labour Party workers in my area council workers who just happen to be sick during election campaigns?

    I dunno, there is a kind of symmetry to the whole thing. I mean, the Tories are supposedly the side of the businessman, so it makes sense that they tell their MPs to do the same kind of thing that everyone else is trying to do to keep costs down :P . Hypocrisy, thy name is government.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
