Victoria launched her fashion brand in 2008. Earlier this year, she came under fire when she tried to seek a government bailout to give 30 employees a leave of absence, despite having a fortune of several million.
The former Spice Girl, whose family is worth £ 335 million, planned to use the government’s Covid-19 plan to pay 80 percent of the wages of some of its staff.
The fashion brand, which employs 120 people, sent letters to 30 employees warning them that they would be given a two-month leave under the government’s scheme.
But Victoria then reversed the decision.
She said The Guardian: ‘We are not going to draw on the government’s leave scheme now. At the start of the lockdown, shareholders agreed with senior management to give a small portion of the workforce time off. At the time, we didn’t know how long the lockdown would last or what the likely impact on the business would be.
“The wellbeing of my team and our company means everything to me.”
Clearly, the company’s filing would have cost the taxpayer £ 150,000.
The company denied that the U-turn was the result of the public response and instead urged the board to “ believe now that with the support of our shareholders, we can navigate this crisis without taking advantage of the leave scheme. ”
