Charlton 'named and shamed'

Charlton are among companies named and shamed by government as one of 191 firms that failed to pay the legally required minimum wage (under previous ownership between 2011-18). Sixteen employees were involved.

Sheffield United, Coventry City, Oldham Athletic, Crewe, and Portsmouth are the other clubs listed.  Charlton's underpayment was £1,880 whereas that of Sheffield United was nearly £22k.

Another reason to be glad we are under new ownership.   It has been pointed out that 'Roland Duch√Ętelet who started the Belgian political party "Vivant" with the founding principle of a basic income guarantee for all citizens also owned a football club that failed to pay minimum wage to a number of its employees.'
