Danum homecare “a disgrace” for failing to pay Doncaster care workers minimum wage

13 people missed out on £1516 of their earnings

Care workers in Doncaster missed out on their hard-earned pay because Danum homecare failed to pay minimum wage, UNISON reveals today (Thursday).

Danum homecare was one of the businesses uncovered as flouting minimum wage law. In total £2.1m was owed to more than 34,000 workers after government investigations.

Named employers have been made to pay back what they owed, and were fined an additional £3.2 million.

Rianne Hooley, UNISON Yorkshire and Humberside regional organiser, said:

“Danum homecare are a disgrace for stiffing their hard-working employees on their earnings.

“Care workers do vital work in our communities, and especially in the last year facing COVID on the frontline.

“Looking after the most vulnerable members of our society, to not even be paid minimum wage, is just not fair. UNISON will always stand with working people to be paid what they deserve.”
