Employment Service workers 'broke internal rules' accepting cash
The Swedish Employment Service says five of its employees broke internal rules when they accepted 999 SEK for participating in a survey by a marketing company evaluating an education firm contracted by the Employment Service, Swedish Television reports.
"One cannot accept a cash reimbursement, one is a public employee also while not working. The role is 24 hours a day," says Lena Wetterlind, deputy marketing director at the Employment Service.
Public employees in Sweden are subject to guidelines on bribery and corruption.
