The article reports that Domino's Pizza has refocused its business since allegations of migrant staff exploitation by the fastfood chain were revealed in 2007. Human resource (HR) director Jane Roberts said that claims made by the Unite union that migrant workers had their wages deducted illegally made the management look at what they are doing to ensure consistency across the franchises. She said the chain had initially responded to the allegations by relaunching a careline, giving all franchises and their staff members access to the central HR team.
