A vineyard labour contractor has been fined $73k for breaching employment law

by | Jun 28, 2017 | News & Events

Last month, Precise Contracting Ltd was found guilty of failing to pay 83 employees a minimum wage, correct holiday pay or keeping proper records. This included regularly altering timesheet and regularly failing to pay an employee’s last weeks wages.

Kevin Finnegan from the Labour Inspectorate said “Just because you find employees leaving your business frustrating does not entitle you to penalise them by withholding their last pay.” he went on to say “New Zealand has a reputation as a fair and equitable country, and it’s important that this is maintained.”
