G. L. Taylor's comment, October 22, 2011 6:49 AM
Why if an employee gets find (be it an for an health and safety issue, parking or speeding tickets etc.) employers claim they cannot legal pay and the employee as to pay or suffer the consequences? If the firm is find then it is suddenly the share holder that foot the bill. Surely if a company is find the owner or directors should be held personal responsible. I can understand the argument that many would declare they did not have the collateral and could not pay but if a mere employee made the same statement I am sure the judge would not just let them off and eventually the alternative in the form of a jail sentence would come into play for not paying the fine. I am sure under such circumstances many bosses and directors etc. would suddenly find the money. He they didn't or indeed genuinely couldn't then the community would at least be protected whilst they were in jail. This might make director actual check if their work can be carried out safely.

Chancellor George Osborne today promised £20m a year in new funding for the not-for-profit advice sector over the next two years. The sum was immediately and widely condemned as being not enough to replace shortfalls left by spending cuts.
