- my wife recently applied to a local hotel for work as a housekeeper/cleaner.
She now works full-time for the agency that supplies cleaners to that hotel and lots of other hotels.
They pay only minimum wage but even so, I thought her wages were a little low considering how many hours she is working.
On checking her own record of hours worked against her payslips,
i found that nothing tallies at all
and after telling her to confront one of her bosses about it,
she was told that although her payslip tells her she is paid by the hour,
in fact she is paid by how many rooms she cleans.
2 rooms = 1 hour.
However, each room can take her up to 45 minutes so I think that she is therefore being paid less than MW.
The company is quite big, i think, and employs a large number of Moldovan/Romanians (my wife is Romanian)
i am concerned that they are exploiting a large number of people.
Now i am unsure about who to approach and of course,
if I am right at all - as a large company, perhaps what they are doing is completely above board?
Any help at all would be very much appreciated.
