Atos Healthcare Employees Investigated
Thursday, August 18, 2011
Two Atos Healthcare employees are being investigated over allegations they made inappropriate remarks on Facebook about the people they assess for sickness and disability benefits.
One employee commented: “Oh god another day here with the down and outs arggggg!” And: “Well that’s the end of my holidays! Back to work tomorrow with the down and outs I suppose…”
And: “Thank god it’s Friday last day in this god forsaken place with the down and outs!”
The company told us: “Atos Healthcare is investigating the claims made about inappropriate comments written by one of its healthcare professionals on a social media website. Atos Healthcare is committed to providing a high quality, professional service to the DWP and expects the same of all its employees. Where it is found that these standards are not adhered to, this is taken very seriously and appropriate disciplinary action taken.”
