The Employment Relations Authority has penalised an employer that short paid wages, holiday and sick pay to its employees in the sum of $141,000.

As well as the order to pay the $141,000 wages the employer was also ordered to pay a penalty of $158,000 ($19,000 of that to the employees impacted and the rest to the Crown).

The ERA held that this behaviour by the employer was deliberate exploitation and the employer threatened its employees repeatedly to try to prevent them from seeking their correct wages.
