New criticism of Employment Service leadership

The head of the Employment Service, Arbetsförmedlingen, was forced to go on Sunday, and now news agency TT reports that a member of the board heads a company that received too much state subsidy.

Board member Christina Johansson says "we admit, it was simply incorrect. But everything has been paid back." Her company, Rinman Education claimed to have more students on its industrial design course than were actually present. The agency for vocational education decided last week that Rinman must pay back SEK 369,000.

The firm also states on its annual report that one of its business plans is to work as a contractor for the Employment Service. Christina Johansson says that her company has done no work for the agency during her time as CEO.
