Care workers jailed for using false papers

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Jail terms have been handed out to three women care home workers in Sussex who gained employment by using false papers. The three employees, all immigrants from Africa, were working at the Ifield park care home in Crawley. They admitted charges of possessing false identity documents and obtaining pecuniary advantage by deception when they appeared before Lewes Crown Court and were each jailed for a year. The court heard that management at the home informed the authorities after they became suspicious as to the authenticity of the women’s papers. Four more women who worked at the home are in custody awaiting trial on similar charges. Ifield Park management declined to tell _Caring Times_ whether or not the staff had been employed via a recruitment agency.
