    Head of G4S immigration unit at centre of abuse scandal quits

    The head of a G4S (Copenhagen: G4S.CO - news) -run immigration unit in Britain at the centre of allegations of bullying and abuse, has resigned, the outsourcing company said on Friday. G4S said Ben Saunders, director of the immigration removal centre near Gatwick Airport in southeast England, would be replaced on an interim basis by Lee Hanford from Monday, Sept. 25, pending the appointment of a permanent successor. British lawmakers accused G4S last week of repeated failures of detainee welfare safeguards and whistleblowing mechanisms at the immigration centre, after physical and verbal abuse by guards was revealed in a BBC documentary.

    What's behind Interserve's gloomy outlook?

    It was once a sector beloved of investors. From the late 1990s onwards, as both central and local government sought to outsource more and more of their activities to private sector contractors, support services was seen as a sector that could do no wrong and that offered huge scope for growth. Today saw another horror story from the sector as Interserve (Frankfurt: 860509 - news) saw its share price more than halve following a profits warning.

    UK's G4S roasted by lawmakers on violent abuse at immigration centres

    British lawmakers accused outsourcer G4S (Amsterdam: GF6.AS - news) of repeated failures of detainee welfare safeguards and whistleblowing mechanisms at a secure immigration unit, after physical and verbal abuse by guards was revealed in a BBC documentary. G4S (Copenhagen: G4S.CO - news) , contracted by the British government to run the Brook House detention centre near Gatwick Airport in southeast England, earlier this month suspended 10 members of staff, three of whom have now been sacked, for abusive behaviour following the documentary. G4S executives Peter Neden and Jerry Petherick gave evidence on Thursday to a cross-party parliamentary committee responsible for overseeing interior ministry matters.

    G4S suspends 9 staff at UK migrant centre, says to investigate conduct

    British outsourcer G4S (Amsterdam: GF6.AS - news) has suspended nine members of staff at an immigration removal centre while it investigates a BBC report alleging abuse in the treatment of migrants, the company said on Friday. "We have received written allegations of abhorrent conduct at Brook House and on that basis we have deemed it serious enough to suspend the staff involved," a spokeswoman for G4S said. BBC Panorama, a flagship documentary programme, said on its website that an investigation revealed "chaos, incompetence and abuse" in the treatment of migrants in a programme which will be aired next week.

    UK security firm G4S makes strong start to 2017, Q1 revenues up 9 pct

    The world's largest security services company said it was confident it would hit its annual revenue growth target of 4 to 6 percent thanks to new contract wins and its pipeline and broadly the same trends in its business as in 2016. "We have delivered good profitable growth across all the regions except Middle East and India which remains challenged," a spokesman for the company said, adding that its U.S. operations had gained from the rollover of retail cash solution contracts from 2016. The performance of G4S (Copenhagen: G4S.CO - news) , which provides personnel for security services as well as cash-handling, has been robust while some UK rivals flounder, primarily because it is gradually reducing its exposure to the UK where the market has been under pressure following Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

    Guards' pay dispute with Total, G4S evokes Yemen's economic misery

    A dispute over unpaid wages in Yemen involving two global corporations has illustrated the disarray wrought by the near total pullout of foreign firms from the war-shattered country. A Yemeni labour court has ordered France's Total and Britain's G4S to pay millions of riyals ($1=330 riyal) in back pay and compensation to security guards who accused the two firms of abandoning them after the war sucked a Saudi-led Arab alliance into battle against Iran-aligned Houthi militia. Both Total and G4S, the French oil giant's security service provider, deny ditching the guards, saying they had made sure they were properly compensated when official termination notices were issued before they left Yemen.

    Headscarves can be banned at work, European court rules

    Employers will be able to ban Muslim staff from wearing headscarves at work, the European Court of Justice has ruled. Companies would need to already have a policy in place prohibiting the wearing of religious symbols and would not be able to ban staff from wearing headscarves on the "wishes of a customer". The judgment was sparked by the cases of two women - one living in France and one in Belgium - who were dismissed from work after refusing to remove their headscarves.

    Britain extends G4S, Serco asylum-seeker contracts to 2019

    LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 8 (Reuters) - Britain extended by two years a contract with G4S (Copenhagen: G4S.CO - news) and Serco to provide asylum-seekers with accommodation and said it would provide extra funds to improve standards and widen the areas in which asylum-seekers are housed. The budget boost follows criticism of the so-called Compass contracts over the standards of property and the time taken to acquire housing for asylum-seekers. In January, asylum seekers in the northern English town of Middlesbrough said they were suffering abuse because they had been housed in properties run by a G4S sub-contractor that almost all had red front doors, making them easy targets.

    Capita warns on profit again as Brexit slowdown exposes flaws

    EDINBURGH, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 8 (Reuters) - Outsourcing group Capita (Taiwan OTC: T1614Y.TWO - news) announced the sale of its asset management services arm alongside a second profit warning in three months on Thursday, exposing flaws in its strategy made worse by the Brexit vote and sending its share price crashing. The company, which provides IT-enabled business services to banks and investors, the national health service, retailers and utilities, also announced more cost-cutting plans and other asset sales to make its debt more manageable as earnings come under pressure. The company is under pressure to offer more services that differentiate it from competitors, but analysts criticised the management for what looked like a rushed change of strategy after the share price started to plunge in September.
