Canterbury Companies In breach of Employment laws ... are you or someone you know?

It appears that the Christchurch rebuild has pressured a number of companies into taking legal short-cuts. The MBIE in Canterbury has been conducting audits as a result of complaints generally and has found 16 out of 23 completed audits so far in breach of laws – especially inadequate employment agreements; inadequate wage records and unlawful deductions from pay. I am still getting regular calls from companies that do not have suitable agreements – the process for getting a suitable one is really very easy – it just needs one phone call to get it started.

And if the Labour Inspectorate do call, my advice is to be as constructive as you can – the more we all show we want to do things right, the easier for all.

Need help managing staff?
