Site security boss fined for paying less than minimum wage
By Grant Prior
The owner of a London construction site security company has been sentenced for failing to pay his workers the National Minimum Wage. Kenneth Nnaemeka Ikerunanwa was fined £1,000 at Wood Green Crown Court after pleading guilty to failing to pay the security guards he employed wages that they were legally entitled to.
He was also sentenced to 18 months imprisonment, suspended for two years, for under-declaring VAT due of at least £72,000 and ordered to pay £20,000 compensation. Ikerunanwa, the proprietor of Widescope Security Services, Tottenham, provided security guards to sites. He also pleaded guilty to failing to produce appropriate documents for HM Revenue and Customs compliance officers during their enquiries.
