41 Keogh's staff at risk of redundancy

The Bolton News: 41 Keogh's staff at risk of redundancy 41 Keogh's staff at risk of redundancy

AN award-winning firm is putting 41 members of staff at risk of redundancy in a department restructuring.

Keoghs solicitors, who investigate rings of insurance fraudsters, is making changes to its counter fraud services division.

Most of the jobs would be at the firm’s Coventry office, but Keogh’s would not say if any Bolton-based staff would be be affected.

“Fee-earning” and “support” personnel are included in the redundancies, according to the firm.

Keoghs described the redundancies as “regrettable”.

The firm said the market’s requirements for insurance fraud have changed following reforms to personal injury claims in the early part of last year, which explains their restructuring.

A spokesman said: “The restructure we are undertaking within our CFS division will give us the agility needed to respond cost effectively and continue to thrive in a rapidly changing market.”

Keoghs is consolidating its North West operations and will continue to service non-fraud work in the Coventry office.

The firm is simultaneuously recruiting 51 new staff members across the business, with their 248-strong counter fraud department making them the largest provider of those services in the UK.

Its been made harder to commit fraud thanks to new rules and investigations. The Asons set up will be the next to feel the downturn in business next.

thomas222 still spouting the racism.

Keoghs actually investigate insurance fraud, I suggest you read the story before trying to sneak in advertisments for the UKIP 4th Reich.

and it is Leeches not Leaches, and as you may or may not know, white people also commit insurance fraud as well.

They are peoples jobs when all said and done, and there are going to be people who have bills, mortgages, mouths to feed and its going to cause them no end of grief.
In terms of what they do then if your entitled to compo for whatever reason then your entitled to it and well within your rights to claim because thats what the insurance is there for to cover you.
If you don't like the price your paying then GO COMPARE!

thomas222,

no doubt you will start to make reference to Crash for clash claims
and then you will lead onto how many of these people are Asian, but vote UKIP and we promise that all Asians will be thrown out of the country just like Idi Amin did in the 1970s.

I know your type too well.

By the way why do UKIP promise that all foreign criminals be deported and yet employ a Pakistani male who has just been convicted of being the head of a kidnapping gang and yet has pleaded guilty because he wants to serve his sentence in Britain as he would be hanged in Pakistan?

Any comments from you or Nigel Foureich sorry Forage?

Please dont tell me what references i will mention and im not racist i would like immigration to be controlled better. For the last 15 yrs thanks to Labour & the ones in now, the crb checks that ukip do are useless thanks to uncontrolled immigration policy that allows people who come in that are rapists, fraudsters, kidnappers and mass murderers.. The police have no records of peoples crimes in other countrys and thats why we have no data base of criminals from elsewhere.... Just another **** up by our leaders.... And you vote for ?

How can an article concerning redundancies end up as a political party broadcast and tirade against imigration.

Jim, I think you should have directed your comments at Bolton Lad85 rather than thomas222 as it is the former who made them. As for Bolton Lad85, please read the article again. Keoghs actually investigate fraudulent accident claims made by 'No win-no fee' claims companies. It is the No-win-no fee companies that are driving up insurance costs, not those investigating them.

It is quite disturbing how some people seem to descend into making abusive comments so quickly on this website.
