According to the information cited by City A.M., the seven employees who left the company last week were offered jobs only to find out a couple of days later that they have a one-week probation period.

Anonymous sources shared that the employees have not been paid. The official position of CWM contradicts the rumors, stating that the broker’s personnel has been paid and the seven employees who left the company did have a one-week probation clause in their contracts.

According to the company, at present the remaining ten employees of CMW FX in Manchester are not working after being put on leave after the Easter weekend.

In the aftermath of the police raid on the premises of the brokerage, Leverate has severed its ties with the company. The partnership between the firms lasted less than six months.

Last month, CWM FX shared with Finance Magnates that it believed that it was a victim of a targeted attempt by former employees to discredit the firm’s business. Whether that is the case or not remains to be seen as we expect more details about the City of London police raid on the premises of CWM.
