The public prosecutor's office in Tübingen is investigating Stefan Wolf, head of overall metal. "The public prosecutor's office has initiated investigations into the withholding and misappropriation of wages in connection with a private household help against Mr. Wolf," public prosecutor Nicolaus Wegelestern and RTL said on request. The "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" had previously reported.
Background: stern and RTL brought to light in mid-October that the President of the Confederation of Employers' Associations in the Metal and Electrical Industry had been employing his private housekeeper illegally for years, i.e. bypassing the tax and without paying social security contributions. The woman worked full-time, five days a week, for Stefan Wolf, who is also Vice President of the Confederation of German Employers' Associations (BDA). She made the beds, cleaned the many rooms in his house, went shopping and tidied up. Several people from Wolf's environment confirmed this to the star and RTL. It is the presumption of innocence.
Wolf has not yet commented on the allegation of social security fraud. He faces a fine of up to 500,000 euros, possibly even a suspended prison sentence.
