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 Wegele told STERN and RTL.

Background: STERN and RTL had reported that Gesamtmetall President Stefan Wolf had employed his private housekeeper for years without paying taxes and social security funds. She worked full-time, five days a week, for Stefan Wolf, who is also vice-president of the employers’ association. This was confirmed to STERN and RTL by several people from Stefan Wolf’s immediate environment. So far, Wolf has not commented on the allegation of social fraud.
