Former West Herts College student Kelly Jane Stone suspended by Transline Group over Twitter remarks
A former Watford student has been suspended from her job as a recruitment worker after boasting about stopping people’s benefits on a social networking site.
Kelly Jane Stone, 25, is employed by the Transline Group and is responsible for finding staff for the online retailer Amazon. She posted the series of messages on Twitter on Sunday.
The string of Tweets Ms Stone posted.
Ms Stone posted: "In my new job, if people from the JC (Job Centre) don’t turn up to an appointment with me, I stop their benefits for 13 weeks... suckers.
"I get so much pleasure knowing what I can do if the (sic) mess me round. I’m going to be shot for it one day I bet."
The former West Herts College student has been suspended from her role with the Transline Group.
A spokesperson for the Transline Group said in a statement: "The lady in question has been suspended pending the findings of the investigation."
Under the Twitter username @DietQueen, which has now been deleted, another message over two tweets read: "I had someone who’s been claiming for 10 years and his benefits were stopped because he told me he gets more through the Government than working. Even his housing benefits stopped... bliss."
On her LinkedIn page, which has now been taken down, Ms Stone said: "I love my team and my job as there are unlimited opportunities."
